San Francisco, Saturday, January 2, 1Q04. 



THE PINAL SALE of Palo Alto Stock Farm 
horses will be held in this city on Thursday 
evening, January 14th. How many realize what this 
means? The final 8ale--the last of the Palo Alto 
Farm horses. The great farm, once the pride of 
every Californian, will breed trotters no more. The 
great industry founded by Governor Stanford is to 
pass absolutely and the pastures and paddoclcs and 
stables devoted to other uses. The farm that was 
the principal agent in making California one of ti e 
greatest trotting horse breeding localities in the 
world is to send its final consignment to the salesring. 
There are but twentj-two head, of these eighteen 
are yearlings, foals of 1903. They are the last crop; 
their sires and dams have been solf* and are scattered 
all over the United States and some even are in 
Europe. These yearlings represent the very acn:e 
of Palo Alto breeding on the plan established by the 
lamented founder of the farm. With one or two ex- 
ceptions thedams of theseyearlings were bred at Palo 
Alto, and in 1902, when the last matings were made, 
Superintendent Covey selected as stallions to mate 
them with two of the greatest sires California has 
ever seen — McKinney and Nutwood Wilkes. Avena 
2:19J by Palo Alto, Elden 2:19J by Nephew, Lueyneer 
by Electioneer, Aerolite by Palo Alto, Sweet Rose 
2:26} as a yearling by Electioneer, and the great race 
mare Helena 2:11} by Electioneer were all bred to Mc- 
Kinney and their foals are in this sale. The Mc- 
Kinneys are deservedly popular. They have proven 
themselves race horses. McKinney is the only stal- 
lion in the Jvorld that has sired five 2:10 trotters, and 
yet every one of the five got his or her record in an 
actual race. Why should not these foals by this 
great horse out of as good mares as Palo Alto ever 
owned be worth something more than an average 
auction price? They will double In value for the next 
two years to a certainty. Cressida 2:18} by Pa.l6'AKb, 
Palita 2:16 by the same horse, Novelist 2:27 by Norval, 
Liska2:16}by Electioneer, Adbuta by Adtfertiser, 
and the great three-year-old race mare Expressive 
2:12i were bred to Nutwood Wilkes 2:16J, the sire of 
the second fastest trotting stallion in the world, John 
A. McKerron 2:04^, and their foals will be sold at the 
sale of January 14th. Is not this the breeding that 
should be sought after? Will they not be worth more 
than they will bring? We answer an emphatic yts 
to both questions. Then there is a bay colt by Mon- 
bells out of Maiden 2:23 by Electioneer. This is royal 
breeding — two crosses of Electioneer and one of 
Beautiful Bells. A brown colt by Nazote (brother to 
Azote 2:04}) out of Gertrude Russell, own sister to 
Palo Alto 2:08} represents the very highest point of 
trotting horse breeding up to date. A bay colt by 
Monbells out of Manzanita 2:16 by Electioneer is 
another royally bred one. the brown filly by the great 
sire Mendocino out of Lulu Wilkes, dam of Advertiser 
is like him, and a bay two-year-old by Iran Alto 2:12}, 
Palo Alto's greatest son, is out of Aria that took a 
three-year-old record of 2:16} and is by Bernal 2:17. 
He should be a race horse and a sire. There are a 
couple of three-year-olds in the sale — one a brown colt 
by McKinney out of Helena 2:11}, and the other a 
filly by Dexter Prince out of Lady Agnes by Elec- 
tioneer. Two broodmares with records, one by Pied- 
mont, the other by Electioneer, complete the list. 
The list of those to be sold will be found in our ad- 
vertising columns, giving age, sex and pedigree, but 
we ad vise every reader to send to Fred H. Chase <t 
Co., 1732 Market street, San Francisco, for a cata- 
logue. This well known firm will conduct the sale, 
and the horses will be at the yard Monday Jauuary 
11th, for inspection. 



OF THE STATE FAIRS held this side the Missis- 
sippi river during the year just passed none was 
so successful financially or caused more favorable 
comment than the Oregon State Fair held at Salem, 



that State. The secretary's report for the year ending 
December 1, 1903, has recently been published in the 
yortli Pacific Rural Spirit, and shows that the net 
profits on the fair was $4128.45. Among the receipts 
were $10,000 appropriation from the State, $10,134 
gate receipts and $7558 from entrance money. The 
sum of $10,384.45, or just $384 45 more than the Slate 
appropriation was paid out in p .-emiums for live slock 
and other exhibits, and $12,490 for purses. In the 
report of the secretary this statement is made: "The 
two large early closing stakes of $2000 each were a 
great success, one bringing in $2100 in entrance fees, 
the oilier $2065. Besides this they brought together 
the best class of horses on the Pacific Coast, which 
attracted a large number of people, swelling our gale 
receipts, on the two days on which they were raced, 
to considerable more than one-half of the entire re- 
ceipts " It is very evident from the report of Secre- 
tary Wisdom that the Oregon State F'air has been 
conducted in a business-like manner under the man- 
agement of 1903. It was run ai a fair and race meet- 
ing and not asa bookmaker's carnival, with the result 
that the public turned out to see the racing and made 
the fair a profitable one financially and otherwise. 
It might bo well for the managers of California fairs 
that havefailed to pay a profit in recent years to take 
a few pointers from this successful Oregon fair. Its 
racing program only lasted six days, and no book- 
making was permitted. There were nevek" less than 
two and sometimes three good harness races each Jay 
and "the fair had the cordial suppo t of the farmer 
aod the business men alike," to use tbe secretary 's 
language. There is no reason why California fairs 
cannot do as well as the Oregon ones, if the managers 
will get rid of the idea that they cannot afford to 
refuse the big bids made by the bookmakers. If they 
will but carefully look over their accounts they will 
see that every dollar of money received from the 
bookies is paid back for free purses for the running 
horses. There is much food for study and reflection 
in the reportof the Oregon State Fair of 1903. 



RACING ON THE ICE is one of the enjoyments 
of the winter season that Californians can never 
enjoy unless they should send their horses to the tops 
of the Sierra Nevada mountains and arrange for 
racing on some of the lakes that lie at an altitude of 
from 7000 to 9000 feet above sea level, and are frozen 
over for a few weeks during December and Januarj. 
Canada is the home of ice racing. An Eastern ex- 
change says that on January 6, at Peterborough, the 
campaigners on the circuit of Canadian ice tracks will 
open the winter season. From Peterborough the 
trotters go to Port Perry, Kingston, Belleville and 
Napanee, finally rounding up at the real centre of 
the sport, Ottawa. At the capital the season of ice 
racing is one of great brilliancy. The races are 
patronized by Lord and Lady Minto and the society 
people who may be wintering in the picturesque city. 
A royal good time is always the result. A track for 
use this year is- already being staked out on the 
Ottawa river in view of the Parliament buildings. It 
is ten minutes' drive from the centre of Ottawa. The 
most important meet of the season is that of the 
Central Canada Racing Association, which occurs 
from January 23 to 30, inclusive. There are two $1000 
purses for stake events, for trotters in the 2:40 clasF, 
and also for pacers of the same speed. The races are 
conducted in accordance with the rules of IheNational 
Trotting Association, and paid judges are employed 

ALEXANDER McCORD'S DEATH, which oc- 
curred in this city two weeks ago, removed from 
our midst one of the most popular pioneer liverymen 
of California. At the lime of his death he was pro- 
prietor of the Fashion Stables on Ellis street, which 
he had conducted for the past twenty-five years, and 
which is one of the leading stables of San Francisco. 
The cause of Mr. McCord 's death was heart disease, 
behaving suffered with that ailment for sometime, 
and had been confined to his home for six weeks be- 
fore death ended his suffering. Alex McCord was 
one of those gonial, whole souled men who made 
friends and kept them. He had been in business here 
in San FraociFco for forty years, was a regular road 
driver and owned and drove many good horses. He 
was a man of splendid physique and tremendous 
strength and conspicuous in any gathering of horse, 
men. 

THE DIRECTORS of the Pacific Coast Trotting 
Horse Breeders Association will • meet at the 
Secretary's oflice, 30 Geary street. In this city, 
Thursday, January 7lh, to arrange and announce 
stakes and purses for the big meeting the association 
will give this year. The Directors extend an invita- 
tion to the managers of all California tracks where 
harness racing is held, and the representatives of any 
or all the Agricultural Districts to meet with them 
and arrange for a harness racing circuit for 1904. 



'TOM SMITH, one of the veterans of California 
* trotting horse breeders and trainers, intends re> 
tiring from the horse breeding business and offers all 
his horses for sale. Mr. Smith has never been an ex 
tensive breeder, compared to some of tbe owners of 
stock farms in California, but he has certainly been a 
successful one, as the records made by horses of his 
breeding will prove. He bred Tom Smith 2:13}, 
Columbus S. 2:17. Stella 2:15*, Little Mao 2:17^, Dolli- 
oan 2:15<, George Washington 2:16} and several other 
trotters with records, and the writer does not recall 
one pacer bred by him, although he may have bred a 
few. Mr. Smith used the stallions Mambrino Chief, 
Jr., McDonald Chief and George Washington and all 
their get with scarcely an exception were lai ge, hand- 
soa:e square trotters and elegant roadsters. Among 
those he now offers for sale is tbe great brood mare 
Daisy S. that is the dam of Tom Smith 2:131, Little 
Mac 2:27A. Sweet Rosie 2:28}, etc. Mr. Smith's horses 
are at Vallejo and can be seen at any time. Read his 
advertisement in this issue. 



SPORTING BALLADS, a neatly bound volume 
containing tbe poems from the pen of R. L. Cary, 
Jr. (Ilyder All) has been received at this oRlce, for 
which the author has our thanks. The volume Is 
handsomely Illustrated and there is a neat introduc- 
tion by Hugh Edmurd Keough, the well known turf 
writer. R. L. Cary has many friends on this Coast 
who have read with pleasure his racing ballads pub- 
lisheJ in the Eastern papers during the past few yeaiB 
and which have now been collected in book form, 
which should be in every sportsman's library. 



Horse Sale at Portland. 

On another page of this issue will be found the ad 
of J. L. McCarthy \- Son, announcing their Second 
Spring Combination Horse Sale (at auction), to take 
place at tbe Irvington race track, Portland, Ore., 
March 1, 2 and 3, 1904. Their sale of last spring demon- 
strated that they do not depend upon Portland alone 
for buyers, as there were horsemen present from 
every section of the Pacific Northwest, Montana, 
Idaho and British Columbia. The North Pacific Fair 
Association Circuit has grown rapidly within the past 
few years and the money now hung up by racing asso- 
ciations in that section compares favorably with any 
other circuit. Horses from California won over'^S 
per cent of the money given away on that otrcult last 
fall and Northwestern horsemen are beginning to 
realize that they must have th« best in order to hold 
their own. As a consequence MesSfs. McCarthy & 
Son aredaily receiving anxious inquiries astD w%fe(lher 
there will be any California horses entered In their 
sale, which would make it seem as though it were a 
good opportunity to sell some well bred horses for the 
high dollar. Times In the Northwest are good and 
the demand for good horses of all classes wlH be very 
strong next spring. Many California horses won 
fame and money in the Northwest last falland If taken 
back to the land of their triumph would undoubtedly 
bring every dollar they are worth. The sale last 
spring was a great success and McCarthy & Son are 
going to spare no pains to make their coming sale 
even more successful. If you have a good horse to 
sell write them for full particulars and entry blanks. 



Hay is high at the present time Ninety-two and a 
half cnls is the average price per hundred pounds 
that the San Francisco houses bid for the CJovern- 
mec t shipments to the Philippine Islands. I'he price 
a ton will be from $17.80 to $19. Seattle's off«r was 
from $I.27J to $1 40 per hundred pounds. The 5000 
tons will probably bo accepted from San Francisco. 
Government hay has not been purchased here for 
some time, the reason being that the San Francisco 
bale has been too large to find favor with the men 
who have to convey it about the islands. If this city 
is awarded the contracts, the firms here say they will 
have to recompress the hay to the Government regu- 
lation bale of four feet. This fact is offered in ex 
planation of Iheexcpss upon the current market price 
of $1(). Fifty cents is for hauling, $2.50 for compress- 
ing, and 50 cents for waste. 



They make automobiles handsomer and faster and 
cheaper and less odoriferous and bigger, yet the horso 
turns up at his annual show in greater numbers and 
finer shape than ever. And more and more people go 
to see him, too. The doctors of evolution do not put 
the horso very close to the human creature in the 
mattfr of descent, but, compared to any possible 
motor car combination of metal and gasolene, man 
will over look upon the horse as a brother. Ills all 
well enough to say that sentiment counts for nothing 
in the days of dollars and c« nts, but it docs, and you'll 
never take from the horse the lore and admiration 
man has given him from the beginning by anything 
whose sole cause for its existence is Its s]>eed, its ex* 
pensiveness and its novelty.— J^tcfer and Driver. 

New Surrey, firstclass, with pole and shafts, canopy 
top, 1} inch rubber tire, turn under, elegantly 
trimmed. Original price $420, can be bought at 
Kenney Manufacturing Company, 531 Market street, 
San Francisco, for $225. New lot of McMurray carts 
just arrived — 1904 models. *

Christmas Matinee at Los Angeles. 

[Los Augcles Times.] 

Thousands of people attended the matinee of the 
Los Angeles Driving Club on Christmas Day. 

The afternoon's racing opened with a four-horse 
trot billed for the 2:50 class, youngsters competing, 
and J. H. Snowden's bay gelding Rondow, driven by 
himself, won In straight heats without difficulty. 
Godfrey Fritz appeared behind a brown gelding, Gen. 
Boodle by name, which did himself proud by finishing 
second In his first appearance on a matinee track. 
William Garland and M. B. Mosher had young 
animals entered, and the time was good for the 
class— 2:34i and 2:31 for both heats. 

A 2:25 pace, second on the bill, went to W. L. 
Heller's brown mare Electra, a performer of much 
promise, who succeeded in doing the two miles 
arouad 2:20 and the last one faster than the first. E. 
J. Delorey and P. L. Budlnger made bids, but were 
not there with the staadinese. 

The third event, a free-for-all, was quite a "boss 
race." The best "boss" in It was Briney K , Owner 
Berry driving, and Briney won in straight heats with 
clockwork regularity of stride, beating his former 
driver. Bob Smith, with Harry Hurst, and C. A. 
Canfield, driving Athaio. Outfooting a pacer with a 
trotter did Berry more good than winning the race, 
though the time was firat class, 2:17^ and 2:16*. 

Ano'her race of high interest was the fourth, for 
pacers, 2:20 (class. E. J. Delorey with a very promis- 
ing bay gelding in Victor Platte; Claude Black, plus 
Berry's variegated cap, with a brass screen for a 
dashboard which was familiarly dubbed (.he "wind 
shield," and sitting behind J. W. Spooner's Wood B.; 
M. B. Mosher with Scappoose, her head propped out 
at right angles to her neck to stop pulling, and Billy 
K., owner K. V. Cocke driving, were the contestants. 
Delorey and Mosher looked so much alike the crowd 
could not tell them apart, but it made no difference 
because in the first heat they were running a little 
race to themselves several hundred yards to the rear 
of Black and Cocke, who made a very handsome heat 
of It. Black had the rail and a length lead; It proved 
to be more than Cocke could make up, though his 
gelding responded gamely to the demand in the 
stretch. The initial heat was the fastest of the day, 
time being 2:15^. The two first were almost within 
whip reach all around, and the deciding trip around 
the oval was practically the same, though a little 
slower. 

To wind up the day a 2:30 class mixed event was 
put on, and two starters came out in it. Dr. C. W. 
Bryson appeared behind George B.,and Dr. Ralph 
Hagan sat behind Zombretta, a very handy, brown 
filly belonging to L. J. Christopher, which showed 
yesterday that she will be heard from in the future at 
all the matinee events. The first heat was a nip-and- 
tuck session all the way around, Hagan having the 
pole. He won in a drive through the stretch, but not 
until Bryson had spoken for the heat In forceful 
fashion. The time was 2:30J. 

The final and deciding heat attracted much atten- 
tion on account of the close finish in the first and it 
was freely predicted that there would be a three heat 
race. The prophets were within a hair's breadth oi 
being right. Coming around within a short toss of 
-each other, Bryson kept George B. back until well 
into the stretch and then went out around Hagan for 
the honors, and had the wire been ten yards farther , 
he would have iaken the heat. Dr. Hagan did not ' 
make his move until the drawgate was passed and . 
George "as going five feet to Zombretta's four at the 
finish only a short bead behind. The first heat was 
doneln 2:3U; the second was for blood and 2:22 was 
hung out, Zombretta making the last half in 1:09 — 
fast enough for a youngster. The summary:

How the Army Horses Are Cared For. 

The problem of getting a maximum amount of work 
on a minimum amount of feed from horses and mules 
used in military Eervlce has been satisfactorily solved 
in the United States Army, the kind, quality and 
amount of forage being the same for every horse, that 
for mules being slightly less in quantity than for 
horses. 

The dally ration of forage for a horse is 12 pounds 
of oate, barley or corn, that of hay 14 pounds; for 
mules the grain ration is 8 and the hay ration 12 
pounds, the allowance of stra^w for bedding being 100 
pounds per month per animal, or in lieu of straw an 
equal amount of hay is allowed for the purpose. 
Many years of experimental feeding were necessary 
before the authorities were satisfied that the amount 
was sufficient, but a casual glance at the mounts of an 
organization will bear out the statement that the 
results attained have been all that can be desired, as 
the hors6s and mules are usually fat, smooth, ard 
have an appearance of being satisfied. 

Captains of troops and batteries as a rule work on 
the theory: " If I look out for my horses my men are 
intelligent enough to look out for themselves," and it 
is a well-known fact. In the service at least, that or- 
ganizations so governed are the best. This does not 
by any means imply that the captain does not enter- 
tain a fatherly regard for his men, for he usually 
does; but his interest in his mounts, from a military 
point of view, begins at reveille and never ends. 

Unlike the feeding of most horses, army horses are 
fed but twice a day, the morning feeding taking 
place at reveille, under the Immediate supervision of 
the stable sergeant; the evening forage being given 
after the horses are groomed and watered at after- 
noon stables, and under the supervision of the troop 
or battery commander; the morning feed of grain 
being slightly in excess of that fed at night, because 
hay is generally fed at night only. Of course, when ' 
troops are on the march the evening is the only time 
when the feeding of hay is possible. 

The statement as to the daily ration must not be 
accepted too literally, as some animals require more 
than other?, and, as all are under scrutiny at all times, 
both by commanders and stable sergeants, it soon de- 
termines how much each Individual animal require.", 
and after this has been determined, due regard is paid 
to such requirements. 

The specifications of contracts forfurnishing forage' 
for the army are most exact in their nature, and un- 
less the grain and hay fully meet the requirements 
ciUedforin the con'.racts it is not accepted, as the 
contractor of experience knows that to try to hood- 
wink the army in the matter of qualities called for is 
a proposition not to be demonstrated, because of the 
vigilance of all through whose hands it is required to 
pass, and that they do not hesitate to express them- 
selves when there is just cause (from the trooper who 
does the feeding to the quartermaster-general of the 
army); thus the forage furnished it, as a rule. Is the 
very best obtainable. 

Oats furnish the bulk of the grain used, corn being 
rarely if ever used, except in latitudes exceeding 
forty-two degrees north, asit is a known facttoevery 
horseman that corn burns out, and destroys a horse's 
digestive apparatus more quickly than any other 
kind of grain. Bran mash, well salted, is fed once or 
twice weekly, and serves as a relish to the horse's bill 
of fare. 

In the garrison horses are always watered thrice 
daily — morning, noon and evening — and most modern 
military stables have in connection a commodious 
corral, in which water la placed, so that it is at all 
times accessible to horses turned loose therein. 

On the march horses are watered wherever possible, 
large quantities never being given while actually on 
the march, but after making camp, and the horses 
are thoroughly cooled and rubbed. They are allowed 
. to have their fill morning and night. 

Overland marches in the western arid lands are so 
conducted as to bring the line of march through such 
territory as is well known to have an abundance cf 
water, and no more grievous thing can befall an or 
ganization than to flod itself in a country where there 
is not an abundance, and amongst military men such 
a place is avoided as Is a pestilence. 

Horses are grazed whenever possible. In the 
spring, after the grass has become abundant, horses 
are not worked very hard, and are allowed to graze 
dally, great care being taken not to allow them to 
get too much at the start, so as to cause any dele- 
terious effects, the grazing period being increased 
daily until they can be safely kept out four hours, 
■ this being generally the maximum time for grazing; 
and this usually takes place in the afternoon, as the 
forenoon is usually occupied by drills and so forth. 
When on the march reveille usually takes place at a 
very early hour, and in countries where grazing is 
possible, horses are allowed to graze for an hour (>r 



80 before starting on the march for the day, as the 
dew is still on the grass, and it is much more palata- 
ble to the animal than after the sun has dried and 
withered it. 

Feed boxes are washed once a week with a vinegar 
solution to keep thom sweet, clean and wholesome, 
it having been found that vinegar is a good deodor- 
ant and one for which our particular. friend, the horse, 
has no repugnance. 

Hay is always well shaken before feeding, and oats 
are usually received in an almost dustless condition, 
80 that the cases of bad-winded horses in the army 
are comparatively few, partly, of course, owing to 
this attention being paid to the forage before feed- 
ing. 

It is remarkable to note the amount of work to te 
got from horses and mules on this comparatively 
small amount of forage. Of course, in ihe garrison 
the working hours for the horse are comparatively 
few, but during the time he is being used there are 
constantly occurring trials that tax his metal 1o~the 
limit. The mule on the other hand, does "his eight 
hours daily at the real work at the post — and scree of 
it is very hard work, too; still the amount of forage 
for actual field service is identical with that for the 
garrison, and when the full amounts are obtainable 
no lack of quantity is ever reported, no matter how 
arduous the campaign. 

The use of alfalfa for army mounts Is as yet In its 
infancy, but where It has been used reports as to its 
use and benefit have been generally favorable, 

A Very Successful Breeder. 

Mr. M. A. Murphy, of the Tesla Coal Company, is 
one of the most successful breeders in California con- 
sidering the number of mares he has used. Four 
years ago he bred five mares to Zombro 2:11, and got 
five colts. One of the colts with six weeks' work 
trotted a milein2,-23; another with two months' work 
paced a mile in 2:25, and the other three colts have 
each trotted miles in 2:20 or better. One of them is 
Zombretta, a filly that won a matinee race at Los An- 
geles on Christmas Day, trotting her heats in 2:30J 
and 2:22, Zombretta has only been up a month, but 
she acted like a veteran and in the last heat of her 
race, after going to the half in l:13J,came home in 
1:08A, the last quarter in 33 seconds. She was trained 
last spring and worked a mile In 2:20 before being 
turned out, the last half of which was in 1:09. Prob- 
ably no breeder on this Coast or elsewhere ever bred 
five mares to one horse the same season and got five 
such colts. Three of them are confidently expected 
to trot In 2:!5 this year, Geo, Beckers will make a 
short season at Los Angeles as usual with Zombro 
and about May 1st will ship the great horse to Cleve- 
land and place him in tho stud there until September 
1st. Any person having a good Zombro colt which 
they desire to sell can ship the same in Mr. Becker's 
car to Cleveland and sell at either the Blue Ribbon 
sale or at private sale. Zombro is not for sale, but 
will doubtless be , kept in Ohio or Kentucky by Mr. 
Beckers, who is firm in the faith that he owns the 
greatest coming sire in the world, and ho wants him 
to have the very choicest mares from now on. 



Rey McGregor Sold for $1200. 

A notable sale was made at Pleasanton last week. 
Al McDonald, who purchased at the Sanders sale in 
this city a few weeki ago the yearling colt Rey Mc- 
Gregor for Mr, W. J, Simpson of San Francisco for 
$445, sold him again to Mr. F. Gommet for $1200, acd 
that is a low priio for him, as he is one of the most 
promising young trotters in the country, Al says he 
is the best one he ever handled and he broke and 
trained Who Is It 2:10i, What Is It 2:10}, Zambra 
2:16} and marked Forest W. 2:14} and Hollo 2:15. He 
sayo it makes a fellow feel good to buy and sell a colt 
at a good profit. By the way, McDonald is getting 
to be quite a horse trader. Last year he bought 
Forest VV. for $250 and sold him for $1,500 after win- 
ning $1900 for him. This year he bought Hollo for 
$500 and sold him for $1,500 after winning a thousand 
with him. The breeding of the colt Rey McGregor is 
as follows: Sire Rey Direct 2:10, son of Direct 2:05i 
and Vera 2:22J, dam of three in the list by Kentucky 
Volunteer. The dam of Rey McGregor is Lurline, 
sister to W.W, Foote 2:15} and Algregor 2:11, by 
Steinway, second dam xMaggie McGregor, dam of two 
in the list by Robert McGregor, third dam Maggie 
Davis, dam of one in 2:30.

Dr. S, A. Tuttle— Dear Sir: By mere accident I came in posses- 
sion of a bottle of your Family Elixir, and tried It onaspiained 
ankle of a horse in my charge with the very best results, so much 
so that I am anxious to adopt it in my veterinary practice, which 
is quite extensive and of forty years' duratlop. Will you please 
make me your best terms? Would take an agency for the sale of 
the remedy in Napa county. I thought I was In possession of 
some floer remedies than any one in the business, but when I gave 
your Elixir a trial found I was mistaken, and believe in giving 
iionor to whom honor is due. Please let me hear from you at your 
earliest convenience, and t bilge. Yours truly.

yearlings by Monbells, MendociDO, Iran Alto and 
Nazote to be sold. 



A decision handed down by the Supreme Court of 
the United States on December 7th, atlirmed the ver- 
dict rendered by the I'hiladelphia courts (Judge 
Sulzberger), awarding Hughes & Fleming, of Bryn 
Mawr, Pa., $9,900 against the Pennsylvania Railroad, 
for injuries to the pacer Montauk 2:16i in the West 
Philadelphia freight yard in 1900. 



Nutwood 2:18i is the leading sire of dams of the 
new standard performers of 1903, so far as heard from 
to date. The number produced by his daughters 
that entered the list the past season is thirteen, and 
eleven of them are trotters. This makes a total of 
two hundred and fourteen standard performers that 
are already credited to his daughters. 



Elmo Montgomery, of Davisville, owner of the good 
colt Seymow 2:23, winner of the two-year-old pacing 
division of the Breeders Futurity In 1903, was in the 
city this iveek and states that the colt is doing well. 
Seymow is by Diawood 2:11, dam Nancy H. by Up- 
start, second dam by a son of Gen. Taylor, and third 
dam a thoroughbred mare by Leinster. 



Belle Irvlngton's weanling foal by Wayland W. 
2:12^, owned by B. L. Elliott of Mendocino, is one of 
the best lookers of the crop of trotting-bred foals of 

1903. Mr. Elliott claims the name Irving W. for him, 
and says he knows he will be a good one as he never 
saw a Wayland W. colt that did not trot or pace fast 
whenever It was taken to a race track. Irving W. is 
a square trotter. 

T. C. Cabney of Eureka writes us that he expects 
to ship his string to Pleasanton this week. He has 
the pAcer Fredericksburg 2:12 by Nephew Jr.; Lady 
Petrina by Directum, dam Petrina by Piedmont; 
Morosco, a green horse by Wayland W., dam Lady 
Moor by Grand Moor; and a couple of colts by Wald- 
stein. Mr. Cabney states that several other trainers 
expect to move from Eureka to Pleasanton soon. 

In Japan the grooms take no chances of getting 
kicked by going behind horses when in their stalls. 
The stalls in that country are so arranged that the 
horses are backed into them. The stalls are long and 
there Is a door at the head to which is attached a 
grain box and a hay rack. The horse stands facing 
the door, and is tied to the hay rack. This door Is 
swung open and the horse Is led out when the stall Is 
cleaned. - 

Chas. A. Durfee will sell four McKlnneys at Fred 
H. Chase & Co.'s salesyard, Thursday evening, 
January 14th. Two are young mares by McKinney 
and out of the famous mare Stemwinder, the dam of 
Directum 2:05J. There is also a filly by McKinney 
out of a mare by a son of Venture and a colt called 
Johnny McKenzle that Is one of the best prospects In 
California for the three year old trotting stakes of 

1904. He Is a royally bred one and a good square 
trotter. These are all to be sold to dissolve a co- 
partnership. 

The bay Ally by Nutwood Wilkes 2:16J out of the 
great race mare Expressive 2:12J by Electioneer, 
should b» worth alot of money simply as a prospect. 
Expressive was one of the greatest three-year-olds 
ever foaled In America. At the Palo Alto sale In 
New York last month she brought $1700, the top 
price of the sale. She is now twelve years old and 
this bay Qlly is her foal of 1903. It should be one of 
the greatest prospects In California, and will go to 
the highest bidder at Fred H.Chase & Co.'s sales- 
yard, 1732 Market steet, on the evening of January 
i4th. 

In his interesting letter from Memphis printed in 
the Home Jierietr, Secretary Murray Howe says that 
Ed Geers has stepped Stanley Dillon by Sidney Dillon 
several heats better than 2:12. Three California 
trainers are domiciled at the Memphis track this 
winter, Millard Sanders, J. M. Nelson and W. M. 
Hendrickson. Nelson still keeps his fast green mare 
China .Maid in active training and while he gives her 
repeats, seldom asks her to beat 2:20. This is not 
very stiff work as she has been one mile as fast as 
2:05J. .She is by McKinney out of Blanch Ward, 
second dam of Guy McKinney, and was bred by T. 
J. Drais, of Farmington, who sold her to the ex- 
Chinese Consul Ho Yow Millard Sanders is living 
In the cottage on the grounds, recently vacated by 
Scott McCoy. Ho Is giving his large bunch of Ax- 
worthy 2:15i colts easy work to date, as they are all 
soft. Anzella 2:0<i:{ has been fired and looks like a 
new mare. Lou Dillon hat) her shoes off and is turned 
out Id a large paddock every day. 



A yearling colt by Mendocino 2:19J (sire of Monte 
Carlo 2:07}, etc.,) dam Carmine by Electricitr (eon of 
Electioneer and .Midnight, dam of .lay Kje See 2:0()}), 
second dam (Jons-olation (dam of two in the list by 
Dictator, third dam Belle by Normun 25, fourth dam 
yic by Mambrlno Chief 11, will bo sold at Fred H. 
Chase «t Co. 'a salesyard Thursday evening, January 
14th. This colt is one of the best bred ooes ever sired 
by Mendocino. 

Col. J. C. Kirkpatrick Is driving his three year-old 
coll Eldon Bolls on the Park roads and finds bim a 
very speedy youngster. The coll is a very handsome 
fellow and his breiding could hardiv bo surpassed, as 
he Is by Monbells 2:23J out of Elden (dam of Kleata 
2:0H1) by Nephew, second dam Eleanor by Electioneer, 
third dam the famous old thoroughbred mare SalJle 
Gardner by Vandal. As his breeding would indicate, 
Elden Bells was bred at Palo Alto Stcck Farm, 



M. W. Savage has recently purchased a number of 
broodmares, and now has at the International Stock 
Food Farm seven mares that have produced 2:10 per- 
formers. No other farm in the world has as many. 
The mares are Belle, dam of Indiana 2:04j; Clara B , 
dam of Joe Pilot 2:09J; Maude, dam of Martha 
Marshall 2:0t)l: Argosa, dam of Argetta 2:08JS; Colum- 
bine, dam of Capt. Brino 2:(l71; Polly Swill, dam of 
The Swift 2:094 and Lalla, dam of Kentucky Star 2:08. 



Nearly every man, woman and child in Fresno that 
admitesa horse were at the track there Christmas 
Day to see a match race between Louis Bacbant's 
good pacer George and Charley Clark's pacer New- 
port. The match was for $.'<00 a side and the refult of 
a year's joshing and bantering back and forth. The 
race was won by Mr. Bachant in three straight heats 
in 2:10J, 2:19J and 2:20',. The first heat George won 
easily, but in the next two he had to stretch his neck 
and won by a half length each time. George is prob- 
ably the last new 2:20 performer of the year 1903. 
He Is by Loeber, a son of Whippleton. 



The Paris mutual system was established in France 
in 1891. Since that time the public has bet $480,58:2,- 
800 through this official betting system. During 1899 
the largest amount of money was placed and amounted 
to $51,000,000. The government receives 7J per cent 
from the amount bet on Parisian 'tracks and 10 per 
cent from all other race courses in France. Official 
figures show that the French Government derived 
$32,700,000 from this revenue in twelve years from 
the Paris tracks alone. During the same period Paris 
horse racing clubs received $18,200,000 for expenses 
in connection with the operation of the Paris 
mutuals. 

Pat O'Brien is working quite a number of horses at 
Lodi. One Is a son of Oro Wilkes, dam Flora Belle, 
and is very promising. He also has acolt that he has 
named Cortelyou that is by Heroison of Director) out 
of a Dexter Prince mare. O'Brien has two two-year- 
olds by Daedaliun that he says are orackerjacks. An 
association has been formed at Lodi and is now at 
work building a new track. Lodi Is one of the best 
places In California to winter horses, and the soM 
thereabouts is much like that at Pleasanton, the 
hardest rains only making it better. The old track 
was cut up last year and planted to orchards and 
vineyards. 

W. G. Durfee brought back with him from his 
Eastern trip a stud colt by Peter the Great 2:07), sire 
of this year's sensational three-year-old Sadie Mac 
2:11]. The dam of this colt Is Juanita 2:29, dam of 
Sinaloa 2:25} by Sultan; second dam the great brood- 
mare Beulab, dam of 3euzetta 2:06}, Early Bird 2:10 
and four others in the list; third dam Sally B., dam 
of Maurine 2:1.1} and two others, by Lever, son of 
Lexington. This colt showed a mile in 2:21, last half 
in 1:07J, after a few months work. He is a good 
headed coll, quite handsome and perfect manners. 
He was foaled In 1900 and bred by J. Malcolm Forbes. 
A son of Peter the Great that is as well bred as this 
fellow should be an acquisition to this Coast. 

The average colt at birth will weigh one hundred 
and ten pounds; at the end of the first year fire hOn- 
dred and twenty pounds; at the completion of Us 
second year. It will have gained two hundred and 
twenty-eight pounds, thus making Its weight at that 
period seven hundred and eight pounds; It will have 
gained one hundred and eighteen pounds more during 
Its third year and at its completion will tip the scales 
at nine hundred and twenty-six pounds, while at the 
fourth year It will have gained seventy pounds more, 
*,huB making Its weight nine hundred and ninety six 
18 a four-year-old. These estimates are based on a 
3las8 of horses known as drivers and of course ihe 
Bgures do not apply to drafters, chunks or bronks. 



Mr. Alex Brown, proprietor of the Walnut Grove 
Farm, met with a severe loss on the 23d of Decern bet. 
Chas. Spencer, the farm's trainer, was driving to the 
blacksmith shop with Arlstlna, full sister to theOpcl- 
dent Stake winner Aristo 2;17i by Nushagak. The 
filly got frightened at some people standing on the 
top of the levee and shied very suddenly to one side, 
throwing Spencer out of the cart, and then jumped 
off the bank of the levee, which is twenty feet high 
at that place, into the river. The filly was drowned 
before assistance could be had. Mr. Brown conbidere 
his loss a most severe one, not for the money value 
but owing to the fact that Aristina was a filly whose 
breeding and individuality he prized very highly and 
was just what ho wanted and may not be able to re- 
place. She was very promifing, having already 
shown 2:40 speed although only broken In October. 
Mr. Brown looked on her as beint; even better than 
Aristo, and all horsemen know that he is considered 
one of the greatest trotters In Olifornia. Wo sym- 
pathize with Mr. Brown in the loss of this filly and 
sincerely hope that no such bad luck will visit him In 
the future.

Excellent Opportunity. 

Any g'ood live horseman that knows anything at all 
about buBtneaa can make money this year by purchas- 
ing the Sidney stallion William Harold 2:I3| and 
placing him in the stud at some good locality in Cali- 
fornia. Mr. H. W. Meek, owner of the horse, intends 
to retire from horse breeding, and has already sold at 
auction all his broodmares. He has a few weanlings, 
yearlings and two year olds that will be sold later, 
and now offers William Harold at private sale. This 
stallion is by Sidney, grandsire of Lou Dillon l:58j, 
and is out of the erreat race and broodmare Cricket 
2:10dam of four in the list by Steinway. William 
Harold has but very few foals old enough to be 
trained, and the only two ever sent to a race track 
are the trotting mare Janice 2:08} that died a year 
ago, and the pacei Dun Burns 2:15. The William 
Harold colts and Qllies are all naturally fast and have 
size and good looks. He is a well built, sound horse 
and will be well patronized in any community where 
good roadsters are bred. 

A Grandly Bred Two-Year-Old. 

Walter Mastin, formerly of Woodland but now of 
Sacramento, has sold to Mr. William Hashagan, a 
dark bay colt by McKinney, dam Goldenrose by Fal- 
rose, second dam Lady Harper by Alaska, son of 
Electioneer, third dam Lady Gray by Algona, sire of 
Plying Jib 2:04, fourth dam by Odd Fellow. Mr. 
Mastin received $.525 for the colt before be was ever 
booked up. When the colt was foaled Mr. Mastin 
called him Rosekin, but Mr. Hashagan has changed 
the name to Kinney Rose, which is certainly a very 
euphoneous as well as an apt cognomen. KiLney Rose 
entered and paid up on in the Breeders $6000 
Futurity for foals of mares bred in 1901. He will be 
two-years-old this spring and will very likely be 
started in the two-year-old division. 



Two Show Horses. 



A'bout two years ago, Mr. P. W. Bellingall, the 
w6ll known customs broker of this city, sold two 
horses to parties who took tbtm east. One was by 
Secretary, the other by Knight, and they are now 
said to be oDe of the greateat pair of abow horses in 
America, having kou the blue ribbon as a team at 
Das Moines, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Hansline. The 
gelding by Knight, which was named Knight of 
Bellingall by his purchaser, won the blue ribbon 
shown single at Hamline, Milwaukee, Griggsville, St. 
Louis, and at the Kentucky State Fair, Owensboro; 
he beat twenty cracks, including Mode Nicoll's crack 
gelding that afterward won from Rhea W., Com- 
mander Baker, and all the crack roadsters. 



Daedalion 2:11 to be Sold. 



. One of the comicg great sires of speed in Callfornial 
as sure as he is given any chance in the stud, is Daeda- 
lloo 2:11 by Diablo 2:09}, out of the great broodmare 
Grace by Buccaneer. His oldest foals are two-year- 
olds and the owners are so enthusiastic over them 
that all want to breed to him again. Geo. Fox has 
determined to sell Daedalion, however, aid be will 
goto the highest bidder. If the buyer wishes to 
train him we believe Daedalion can lower his record 
to 2:05 and win well in his class. He will be sold at 
Fred H. Chase & Co.'s salesyard, Thursday evening' 
January I4th. 

The Lick House. 

The most popular hotel with Callfornlacs is The 
Lick, which has always catered to the best people 
and which has lately been newly furnished and re- 
modeled to make It still more attractive and popular. 
The new Grill room Is perfect in every detail and one 
of the most beautiful dining rooms in the world. 
Since Mr. Geo. W. Kingsbury assumed the "manage- 
ment of this great hostelry it has acquired the name 
of being the headquarters for the leading, business 
men of the PaolBo Coost. 

W. R. Murphy of Los Angeles has recently pur> 
chased a thoroughbred colt by Nels Morris out of a 
mare by Hubbard. He is called Copper Lion and is 
entered In two (1000 stakes to be decided at Ascot 
Park. He Is working fast and will make the others 
run some to beat him. Mr. Murphy has commenced 
work on GoMr'n Boy, the McKinney colt that was 
pictured on i i.' front page of the BREEDER and 
Sportsman rec itly and states that bets showing up 
like a sure trottei

Horses for the Market. 

Mature and well broken horses are always the best 
sellers. A year or two spent In waiting for a horse 
to develop and educate means an expenditure of time 
and money on the part of the purchaser which is un- 
desirable as a rule unless the horse is bought specifi- 
cally for the purpose of fitting it for t^e finished mar- 
ket. The ideal age is five years, buyers usually pur- 
chasing animals ranging from five to eight. The 
classes vary somewhat in this respect. A horse in- 
tended for draft purposes may be marketed somewhat 
sooner than a harness horse or saddler. The breed 
to which a horse belongs has very little influence on 
the selling price. All that is required is a good indi- 
vidual of its class. A good horse always sells. Geld- 
ings are preferred somewhat generally to mares. 
Color does not figure so strongly as many would lead 
us to believe. Almost any color with excellence to 
back it will sell well except white, flea-bitten gray, 
mealy bay or any other color that might be tert^ed 
washed out Among drafters, no special color seems 
to have a preference. With harness horses and sad- 
dlers, bays, browns and chestnuts have first prefer- 
ence, but grays and blacks sell readily if good. Well 
matched teams, both in harness and draft classes, 
usually bring higher prices than if sold singly. 

Condition is very often overlooked. It is absolutely 
essential that a horse be in good condition to briner 
what it is really worth. This is particularly true of 
animals of the draft type. Whether it increases the 
animal's real value is not necessary to consider. The 
market demands high condition and pays those men 
well who cater to it. The great lack of condition is 
shown by the fact that many horses are sent in for 
sale only to be resbipped to the country for further 
feeding. Condition is almost as essential as fat on a 
steer and Its absence cuts from twenty-five to fifty 
per cent from the selling price of a horse. The re- 
quirements of the market in this line are well worthy 
of notice. Every class calls for an animal of intelli- 
gen ce and good disposition, willing to pull at a good 
rate or set a fast pace on the driveway and capable 
and cool-headed In an emergency. The use of horses 
on city streets, often among large numbers of pedes- 
trians, makes the latter particularly essential. The 
need of these qualifications is more important in some 
classes than in others. 

The most important requirement of a market horf e 
is serviceable soundness — that is, having no chronic 
disease that will unfit it for work of a general nature. 
It must be sound in wind and In limb, able to do a 
reasonable amount of work without undue fatigue or 
premature breakdowns. The majoHty of horses sold 
to the city trade are compelled to do their work on 
hard, unyielding pavements, pulling heavy loads or 
developing speed that is an even greater strain on 
the feet and legs. The average period of usefulness 
on city streets of a horse sound at the start is not 
more than five years and it is manifestly decreased if 
It begins work in an unsound condition. Broken 
wind, sidobones, unsound hocks and all the various 
other ills to which a horse is heir should be strenu- 
ously guarded against, as they greatly diminish its 
value. 

The next requirement Is a conformation that will 
enable an animal to do hard work with a minimum of 
wear and give the longest possible period of sound- 
ness. Spacial emphasii should be placed on the foot, 
which should be of medium size with hard and dense 
horn, plenty of height to the heels and plenty of 
room between them, a large elastic frog and a nicely 
hollowed sole— in short, a sound, durable foot. The 
pastern slopes should correspond to that of the 
shoulder. These conditions — with flat, fully developed 
muscles, strong, well-developed joints, strongly sup- 
ported knees and hooks, clear clean-cut tendons 
standing well out from the leg and dense bone of a 
quantity sutficient to sustain the weight of the horse — 
will give a Umb well calculated to withstand tie wear 
and tear of a city pavement. Joining the fore and 
hind quarter? we must look for a deep, fairly wide 
and compact middle plecu with ample room for ch<gt 
organs and no pinching at the waist. Too much 
width should be avoided as the action of the forelegs 
is almost sure to be bad with suob a conformation. 

A short back la generally sought, especially one 
which shows the least possible amount of space be- 
tween tbelast ribs and the hips, giving a close coupled 
horse This is almost as essential as a sound foot. A 
long, loose-ribbed, open-jointed, wasp waisted animal 
is especially to be avoided. Such conformation in- 
dicates lack of strength and forecasts an early break- 
down. The shoulders should be deep and smooth 
and hind quarters deeply muscled, wide and well 
rounded. A sloping rump is always unsightly and 
detracts both from the use and value of the borse 
for It stands to reason that such a conformation can 
not furnish the same amount of muscle that a nicely 
rounded one can. The tail should be set high and 



smartly carried. Prominent shoulder points, hips 
and buttocks are objectionable. The neck should be 
clearly outlined, of moderate length and well muscled 
with a good chest. The bead should be clean cut and 
of moderate length, with a rather small ear, much 
breadth and fullness of forehead, with a large, clear 
full, intelligent eye and a wide open nostril. 

Some Statistical Sittings. 

[Horse Review.] 

McKinley 2:07} Is the fastest trotter on record whoEe 
dam is of untraced breeding. 

Stranger O. 2:09}, pacing, is the fastest harness per- 
former yet produced whose breeding is entirely unj 
known. i 

The only sire whose daughters have produced fonr 
trotiers with records below 2:09 is Robert McGregor. 
The four produced by them are Grattan Boy 2:08, 
Jay McGregor 2:08, Elloree 2:08i and- York Boy (to 
wagon) 2:08i{; all four are by Wilkes stallions. 

Caspian 2;07i and Caracalla 2:10, both by Patron 
2:14}, out of Cascarllla 2:25.J by Shelby Chief, are the 
only own brother and sister with trotting records of 
2:10 or better. 

Lucy Homer, dam of Authorebs 2:09} and Lecco 
2:09^, is the only mare who has produced two trotters 
with records below 2:10. She is by Homer, son of 
Mambrino Patchen, dam Dinnie 2:25 by Rochester, 
son of Aberdeen. 

Went worth 2:08 by Superior, son of Wood's Hamble- 
tonian, is the only 2:10 trotter yet bred in Canada. 

Patron 2:14}, Prodigal 2:16 and Patronage, all by 
Paocoast 2:21ii, out of Beatrice by Cuyler, are the only 
three own brotners who have all sired 2:10 trotters. 
Patron is sire of Caspian 2:07} and Caracalla 2:10; 
Prodigal of John Nolan, 4, 2:08; Patronage of Allx 
2:03|. 

Nancy Hanks 2:04 by Happy Medium, dam of 
Admiral Dewey, 3, 2:14J is the fastest trotting mare 
that has yet produced a standard performer. 

Rachel, 4, 2:08} by Baron Wilkes 2:18, dam of Great 
Spirit 2:lli trotting, 2:20 pacing, and Peace Commis- 
sioner 2:25}, trotting, is the fastest pacing mare who 
has yet produced a standard performer. Miss Logan 
2:06}, Sally Toler 2:063, and Vera Capel 2:07^ are all 
producers, but all took their best records after pro- 
ducing their foals. 

The fastest sire and son, pacing, are Joe Patchen 
2:01} and Dan Patch 1:56}, average record l:58i. 

The fastest trotter out of a record dam is The 
Abbot 2:03} by Chimes 2:303, dam Nettie King 2:20} 
by Mambrino King. Nettie King took her record in 
1891 and produced The Abbot In 1893. 

The faitedt pacer out of a record dam is Free Bond 
2:04}, to wagon, by Simon, dam Princess Alice 2:23 
pacing, by Evan Lewis. Princess Alice took this' 
record in 1893 while carrying Free Bond, and reduced 
it the next season to 2:2U after foaling him. 

Primrose by Alexander's Abdallab is the only 
mare who has produced ten producing sons. Beauti- 
ful Bells 2:29i by the Moor ranks second with eight. 

Peter the Great, 4, 2:07} is the only winner of the 
three year old Kentucky Futurity (1898) who has 
sired a winner of the same event — Sadie Mac, 3, 2:11J 
In 1903. 

Boralma 2:07 by Boreal (3) 2:15ii is the only trotter 
to win both the three-year-old Kentucky Futurity 
and the Transylvania. He won the former in 1899 
and the latter in 1900. 

Rilma 2:08J by King Wllkes2:22} is the only trotter 
who has ever won both the M. & M. at Detroit, and 
the Transylvania, at Lexington, a feat she performed 
in 1897. 

Crescaus 2:08 is the only trotter that has ever beaten 
2:10 over a half-mile track. 

Four pacers have beaten 2:05 over half-mile tracks: 
Dan Patch 2:03}, Prince Alert 2:03^, Joe Patchen 2:04^ 
and John R. Gentry 2:04i. 

McKinney 2:11} by Alcyone 2:27, dam Rosa Sprague 
by Gov. Sprague 2:20J, is the only sire of flve 2:10 
trotters, the latter being Charley Mao 2:07|, Kinney 
Lou 2:07J, Hazel Kinney 2:09}, The Roman 2:09i and 
Dr. Book 2:10. All have race records. 

No sire has as yet sired a 2:05 trotter, and the dam 
of one. Director 2:17, sire of Directum 2:05} and of 
the dam of John A. McKerron 2:04i, misses it by a 
quarter second only. 



F. J. Yandel of Santa Hosa now has tbe mare 
Laurel by Nephew, second dam Laura C. 2:29} by 
Electioneer, third dam the thoroughbred mare 
Fanny Lewis by imp. Buckden. Laurel has a filly by 
Stam B. 2:11} that will be four years old in May next 
and is a great prospect. It is Mr. Yandel's Intention 
to breed Laurel to Sidney Dillon this year if she is 
not sold. She is now with foal to Stam B.

Alexander's Belmont 64. 

Belmcnt wasa light bay horse with one white ankle 
behind, and stood about 10 hands high. He was bred 
by R. A. Alexander, and foaled at Woodburn Farm 
in 1864. He was bv Alexander's Abdallah, and was, 
undoubtedly, the handsomest, best finished and most 
elegant animal ever got by that renownsd son of 
Rysdyk's Hambletonian. 

The dam of Belmont was Belle by Miimbrino Chief 
11, and his second dam was Belle Lupe by Brown's 
Bellfounder. Belle, the dam of Belmont, also pro- 
duced the trotting stallion MeCurdy's Hambletonian 
2:26i, quite a successful sire of speed. Brown's Bell- 
founder, sire of the second dam of Belmont, was by 
imp. BdUfounder. The latter, as our readers wtU 
know, was from a family of horses called in England 
Norfolk trotters. 

The most famous trotters in England at the time 
Bellfounder was imported (1822) were members of this 
family. Bellfounder, the sire of imp. Bellfounder, 
originated from the same source as imp. Messenger. 
The latter was by Mambrino, he by Engineer, he by 
Sampson, he by Blaze, and he by the renowned Flying 
Childers, son of the famous Darley Arabian. Bell- 
founder was by Pretender, he by Fireaway, he by 
Driver, and he by Shales, a son of Blaze, the remote 
progenitor of imp. Messenger. 

The dam of Billfounder, sire of imp. Bellfounder, 
was by Smuggler, he by Hue-and-Cry, he by Scott 
Shales, and he by Shales, the son of Blaze, mentioned 
above. It will be seen from this, that both the sire 
and dam of imp. Bellfounder's sire, were direct de- 
scendants of Flying Childers, through his son Blaze. 

It is needless to state that Flying Childers was the 
fastest horse in all England in his day, for that fact is 
well known to the readers of this paper. Brown's 
Bellfounder was considered the best bred son of Imp. 
Bellfounder. His dam was quite closely inbred to 
Imp. Messenger, and Messenger blood was then as 
now considered the most valuable in the world for 
transmitting the best of trotting action, as well as a 
strong inclination to stick to the trotting gait. The 
dam of Brown's Bellfounder vas Lady Allport. Her 
sire was Mambrino, the thoroughbred son of Imp. 
Messenger, that got Abdallah, sire of Rysdylt's 
Hambletonian. The dam of Lady Allport was by 
Tippoo Saib, another thoroughbred son of Imp. 
Messenger, and her second dam was a daughter of 
Imp. Messenger. As Mambrino Chief, sire of the 
dam of Belmont, was by Mambiino Paymaster, a 
son of Mambrino, by Imp. Messenger, it will be seen 
that Belmont had a very strong inheritance from 
Messenger on both sides. 

Belmont was never raced. It is stated upon good 
authority that he was worked some for speed on the 
Woodburn Farm track, and trotted a mile in 2;29J"a8 
a five year old. When seven years old he trotted a 
mile in 2:28J on Woodburn track. He was used ex- 
clusively for stock purposes, and was allowed to per- 
form but a limited amount of service each season, 
not exceeding fifty, if memory serves us right. 

The broodmares at Woodburn F'arm were a choice 
lot. Belmont was the most popular trotting stallion 
that bad ever stood at Woodburn, and the best of 
the trotting broodmares there were mated with him. 
The proprietor of Woodburn did not campaign trot- 
ters. He bred to sell, and the reputation of his stock 
was such that he got good prices. Had he trained 
the get of Belmont for tin cup records that horoe's 
list of standard performors would doubtless have 
been much larger than at present. When their 
owners began to race the get of Belmont, however, 
they soon found that they were capable of getting the 
money. 

One of the mares mated with him in bis five year 
old form was the now famous Miss Russell. The 
produce was the renowned Nutwood 2:18}, foaled In 
1870. Among Belmont's crop of foals for 1871 were 
Wedgewood 2:19, Dick Moore 2:22J and Nil Desper- 
andum 2:24, three as game trotters as were ever got 
by one sire in a single season. 

The dam of Wedgewood was thefamous Woodbine, 
by Woodford, a thoroughbred son of Kosciusko. 
Dick Moore's dam was Mary, a thoroughbred daugh- 
ter of Monmouth Eclipse, and Nil Desperandum was 
from a mare of unknown breeding. It was not long 
before horsemen who wished to compliment a horse 
highly for his racing qualities would say "he Is as 
game as a Belmont." 

Belmont's get were also noted for beauty as well as 
speed and gameness. The stallion King Rene, by 
Belmont, was one of the most noted blue ribbon win- 
ners of his day. He was a formidable rival of Mam- 
brino King in the show ring, and sometimes got the 
decision over that beautiful son of Mambrino Patchen, 
that had been pronounced by some "the bandBomest 
horse In the world." 

Belmont was always kept at Woodburn Farm from 
the day he was foaled in 18G4, to that of his death, 



Nov 15, 1889. He is now credited with 40 trotters 
and 10 pacers, that have made records in standard 
lime. Seventy-four of his sons have sired a total of 
49.3 trotters and pacers, that have made standard 
records. 

The most successful of his sons as siros of standard 
performers are Nutwood 2:18:}, now credited with 134 
trotters and 35 pacers; King Rene 41 trotters and two 
pacers; Egmont 32 trotters and nine pacers; Wedge- 
wood 20 trotters and 15 pacers; and Vatican 16 trotters 
and five pacers. Nutwood 2:18}, has shown much 
greater speed perpetuating ability than any other of 
Belmont's sons, and his progeny in the standard list 
bids fair to eventually outnumber that of all the other 
sons and daughters of Belmont. — American Horse

The Sulky Maud S. Pulled. 

The news from Chicago Is to the effect that the sons 
of the late Robert Bonner, who was noted as an ad- 
mirer of fast trotters and who owned Maud S. when 
she beat all of the then existing trotting records by 
compassing a milo at Cleveland in 2:08:|, have pro- 
tested the high sulky record of 2:05 made over the 
same course laet summer by Lou Dillon, the present 
champion trotter. 

The protest has been lodged with the American 
Trotting Register Association, whose office is in Chi- 
cago, and will be considered by the officers of that 
organization at a meeting soon to be held. It is this 
association that publishes the Year Book, which Is 
accepted as the final authority on all pacing and trot- 
ting records. It Is understood theBonners will make 
a stiff fight. The points on which they base their 
claim that the record should be thrown out are that 
the sulky pulled by Lou Dillon, while of the regula- 
tion wheel type, was provided with ball bearing hubs, 
thereby making the vehicle much less difficult to drag 
at a high rate of speed than a sulky not thus equipped. 
Also that a wind shield was used on the sulky of the 
running horse which preceded Lou Dillon during the 
2:05 mile. 

Regarding the application of the heirs of the late 
Robert Bonner for the setting aside, by the proper 
authorities, of ihe high-wheel sulky record of Lou 
Dillon there has arisen a spirited discussion. It is 
the claim of the applicants that the record of 2:05 set 
by the California mare should not be recognized be- 
cause It was made to a high-wheel sulky fitted with 
ball-bearings, while the sulky pulled by Maud S. was 
not so equipped, also that the record should be re- 
jected for the further reason that It was made behind 
a wind shield. With the latter contention this paptr 
has nothing to do beyond what it has already said on 
the subject. But the first claim has been the means 
of bringing Into discussion just what kind of sulky 
Maud S. was hooked to in her famous record mile July 
25, 1885. Not a few horsemen have stubbornly 
adhered to the assertion that it was fitted with ball- 
bearings. In order to get at the truth of the matter 
the Stock Farm wired to S. Toomey & Co., the well- 
known sulky builders, who have been in the business 
for a half century, asking what style sulky was pulled 
by Maud S., and when the ball-bearing attachment 
was first used on the high-wheel sulky. The answer 
settles the question most conclusively, and is as 
follows: 

Canal Dover, Ohio, Dec. 19, 1903. 
Kentucky Stock Farm, Lexington, Ky.: 

The record of Maud S. was made to friction axle. 
Ball bearings In high-wheels first used about 1887. 

S. TOOMEY & Co. 

Now all that remains to be settled Is whether the 
Lou Dillon sulky was equipped with ball-bearings. 
On that point Mr. George Dietrich, secretary of the 
Cleveland Driving Club, over whose track both 
records were made, Is reported as having stated that 
It was a friction axle sulky, the same as was the one 
used for Maud S. If Mr. Dietrich Is correct the con- 
troversy is at an end. He may, however, be mistaken. 
If he Is, then the record of Maud S. has not been 
lowered. That Lou Dillon can do It, though, there 
is no doubt In the mind of any one who Is not 
bl&aed. —Ky. Stock Farm. 

Silver Bow to Be Sold. 

At the Splan sale to beheld at Chicago January 
I8th to 23d we notice that among the other horses 
consigned Is Geo. H. Fox's stallion Silver Bow 2:1(> 
by Robert McGregor 2:17i, out of Sadie by Hamble- 
tonian 10. Silver Bow has left stock in this State 
that is very valuable, and his daughters are certain 
to be great broodmares. During the past two yeai s 
Silver Bow has been at Toledo, Ohio, under lease to 
George H. Ketcham, owner of Cresceus. Silver Bow 
should be a very valuable horse on any stock farm 
that is breeding for speed, size, good looks and style.

Look to the Teeth. 



When a horse is particular about what be eats and 
does not seem to thrive on his rations, he requires at- 
tention. In such oases look first to the teeth or l^etter 
still, have a veterinary surgeon do so. Teeth that 
are sharp prove a constant source of Irritation, not 
only when the animal is eating, but when driving, 
and it is little to be wondered at if an animal con. 
ttantly suffering pain should take on an unthrifty 
appearance. Where horses are fed wild hay there i« 
always more or less danger of their getting beaded 
heads lodged between the teeth and cheek, or, in 
some instances, these may lodge under the tongue 
and cause great discomfort. Frequently a head of 
wild rye lodged under the tongue or beside the cheek 
has caused death, this finally being Induced by tfae 
head burrowing into the flesh. The outlay of a dollar 
or such a matter for an examination of this kind 
should not be considered for a moment, because this 
amount may be saved in the course of a week or two 
by the use to which an 1 nimal, after being treated, 
will eat his feed. Where there are many horses on 
the farm it will certainly pay to purchase a tooth 
rasp, and this should be used at least twice a year on 
all horses whose teeth present sharp edges. 



New Stake in Kentucky. 

The Kentucky Trotting Horse Breeders Assooiation 
has announced a new race, the Stoll Stakes, a sweep! 
stakes for foals of 1902, which closed January 1, 1904, 
with a forfeit of $100. The race Is of two heats of one 
mile each, and each heat a race. A horse distanced 
in the first heat will not be permitted to start in the 
second. Position s will be drawn for in each beati. 
More than one entry may be named by the same 
nominator provided the $100 forfeit is paid on -each. 
No further payment will be required till' six o?clock 
the evening before the race, when $150 must be paid 
on each entry expected to start. The $100 forfeit 
must be paid on or before January 1, 1904,, and must 
accompany the nomination — no credit to_ anybody. 
The money will be divided 30 per cent to first, 12^ pQf 
cent to second, seven and one-half per c^'nt. to ^hir^ 
horse In each heat. The race will be trotted wnen 
nominations are three years old (.in 1905), the weeJt 
following the race for the Kentucky Futurity for foals 
of 1902, but money winners in the Kentuckj Futurity 
will not be allowed to start In the Stoll Sta&e,s. jTf 
entered in the Futurity, entrance money will ' b.e re- 
turned.

ROD, GUN AND KENNEL. 



Conducted by J. X. De WITT. 




The Gadwall or Gray Duck. 

This duels is usually known locally as the "gray 
duck," the latter name being the one it is almost 
always called by practical hunters. Essentially a 
fresh-water marsh duck, like his slightly larger 
cousin, the mallard; greedy in his table habits, yet 
particular, and favoied to an even greater extent 
than most of his luxurious tribe in the dual excellen- 
cies of fat and attendant delicacy of flavor, the gad- 
wall every year about this time forces his way into 
the favor of those sportsmen who happily combine 
the pleasures of the epicure with those of the shot- 
gun. The bird is just now to be found in unusual 
numbers in the San Joaquin and Sacramento basins, 
as well as further south on the shooting grounds clear 
to the border line. Wherever the marksman's well- 
directed shot may Viring his body bouncing to the 




On tlie MarNli near Iturdell'a 

earth, there may be found a broad-breasted, cleanly- 
feathered bird with a solid, leady "feel" about it that 
betokens many a sweet, tasty morsel when the quick 
oven has done its work. A lean gadwall is as much 
of a rarity as a thin teal; perhaps even more scarce, 
for the bird is not to be found except in places where 
abundant food is to be had. 

Measuring slightly less than the adult mallard, the 
gadwall often weighs as much, and the female is 
marked slightly like the greenhead's mate, being not 
infrequently mistaken for her by inexperienced shoot- 
ers, though the distinctive marks are many and well 
defined. The drake gadwall in the full glory of bis 
midwinter plumage is one of the handsomest of birds, 
not so much because of any brilliant dazzle a$> from 
sober, but warm hues of his feathers, and the surpass- 
ing elegance of bis form. With a broad, black bill, a 
grayish mottled head and a breast of thesame, striped 
and scaled with lines of the most lustrous black ; white 
underneath with a glossy black tail, and chestnut 
wing coverts, the gadwall diUdrs from the mallard 
and most shallow water ducks in having no bright 
■pot on the wing, a plain white bar edged with black 
being the only ornament. The long feathers which 
overlap the wing when folded are beautifully mottled 
with shades of brown and black, while the brilliant 
orange of the bird's feet serves to set off the rest and 
make him a truly aristocratic-looking creature — an 
appearance which is in no wise belied by bis habits. 

The female is much more sober in her markings, 
and has a black-and-yellow bill, being much smaller 
than her handsome spouse. In fact, the excessive 
difference in size between the male and female gad- 
wall has caused many hunters to think they were not 
the same variety. 

Being a close relative to the mallard, and in some 
sections of the country called "gray mallards, " the 
gadwall are naturally sought for upon much the same 
class of marsh as that favored by the greenheads. 
They are often knocked down out of small bunches of 
mallards, and mallards on the other hand, often 
travel with their smaller relativep, one being seldom 
found in great numbers without the other being close 
at hand. Their food is practically identical. Both 
ducks like grain and will fly far to get it. That fail- 
ing, they eat certain marsh mosses, the seeds of 
various plants, hemp in particular when available, 
and in some parts of the country beech mast or other 
acorns. Like all ducks they catch manj insects, and 
occasBionally indulge in angleworms, slugs, little frogs 



and the like, though a vegetable diet is more to their 

^' Gadwall demand fresh water, and dislike exceed- 
ingly to leave it, resorting to ino octau rather lobs 
than most varieties of ducks on this coast. Wuilo 
well represented everywhere iLey are seiUom itio 
object of special pursuit; being kUitd lu fair numbti s 
among other ducks, haunting odaliow sloughs, wUicU 
can be waded easily witb a pair ol hip boots, i Ley 
llock rather more than ibo maliaius uo, but ate 
hardly what would be called gregarious lowl, never 
appearing in the vast clouds that cuaraclerlze the 
sprigs and widgeon, but being usually noticed in pairs, 
or in small family parlies ol less ihau a uozen. 

The recognition of gauwalj on ibo wing is 
possible at a great distance, as there is only one uiiu 
for which they are liKely to be misbuKtu-iLo 
mallard. The dark beau, uioad wiugs auu oompa.a-

luay bo picked out at a great dis- 
tauoo lu tlio air by Ibolr superior 
size anJ seemingly black breasts. 
Tuo under surface of the wing is

TUero is no need of distinguisbing 
tbem from thootber duck, uowever, 
as tne gadwall is, if auylhing, the 
best biru of the two for table uses. 

Gadwall decoy better than mal- 
lards; in fact, ibey come iu to stool 
splendidly, and il one can imitate 
lueir peculiar, resonant call proper- 
ly, ana does not abuse his ability, be 
will often kill a limit string, and tney 
will be the best birds in Ibe bunch. 
At times, especially when much per- 
secuted they become very wary, and 
exceedingly diHicult to secure; but 
oven under such circumstanees will 
circle down from a great height to 
inspect a well placed stand ol decoys. 
Although a big, strong duck they aie 
oajily and wheucrippled arenotbard 
to capture. In Minnesota and the 
Uakotas, where, in the fall of the 
year, extensive s hallow sloughs form 
on the prairies, after the October 
rains, gadwall are the chief duck, 
and number five shot is generally 
ailvocated for their pursuit. On tbo 
Coast, where all kinds of ducksare 
met with in a day's shooting, sixes 
are a general favorite, and it may be 
truly said for them that a well-direct- 
ed load will stop anything within 
reason from a canvasback to a teal, though the indi- 
viduality of guns often makes one size of shot supe- 
rior to another for all around work. 

In Mississippi and Missoui i valleys the gad wall fully 
live up to all the sportsmen's traditions regarding 
their unfailing good condition, being frequenters of 
the rice marshes and adjacent grain fields from 
September until the icy bonds of winter close up all 
but the swiftest running water. They resort in great 
numbers to the drowned oak and beech woods in the 
spring of the year when food is rather scarce and the 
freshets run high, often affording very pretty sport 
to a pair of skilled hunters, one of whom does the 
shooting and the other carefully pilots the boat 
through the openings, taking turn about. The birds 
are jumped mostly, though sometimes an observant 
hunter notes a flight or "pass" into a favorite over- 
flowed resort where a stand is selected from which 
the shooter has no trouble to knock over the big 
birds as they come in. The mallards and red- 
heads often resort to such places at the same 
time 88 the gadwall. All three manifest the 
samelove of seclusion amid different surround- 
ings on the Coast.

C. W. Minor of Victoria, B. C, was last week 
awarded $200 damages for the loss of his well- 
known Setter dog Roy Montez. He brought 
suit for $1000 and the case was tried in the 
Victoria County Court before a jury. Evi- 
dence given went to show that the dog had 
attempted to cross the track on the Birdcage 
Walk incline, in front of an advancing car, 
then descending the slope toward the bridge, 
and that being unable to clear the track was 
knocked over and sustained fatal injuries. The 
defense contended that the rush of the dog 
was so sudden and swift that no human power 
could have intervened to stop the car in time; 
that the car was no^ going at more than the 
statutory rate of speed, and that all reasonable 
effort was exerted to avert the accident. The 
complainant charged culpable negligence on 
the part of the motorman, and claimed that 
due diligence was not shown In attempting to 
prevent the accident.

The Grand American Handicap. 

The Indianapolis Gun Club is to be congratulated 
on securing the Grand American Handicap for 1904. 
The Interstate Shooting Association, which contiols 
the American tournament, has decided that the big 
tourney is to be held in Indianapolis next spring. The 
Grand American Handicap is the greatest trap 
shooting event in the world and it is proposed to 
make the next tournament the greatest ever held. 

he Indianapolis Gun Club is less i han nine months 
old, but it has the largest membership, with possibly 
the exception of one or two clubs, of any organization 
in the country, its mtmbership is compostd of the 
boat professional and amateur shooters in that city. 
State and country and prominent business men as 
well. Before the club house was finished the club 
secured the Indiana State tournament for 1604, which 
is the most important tourney in the Slate'and ranks, 
it is claimed, second to the national shoot. The State 
tournament is set for June 8, it, 1UU4, but it may be 
held earlier if the Interstate Association decides to 
hold the grand American Handicap in June of next 
year. Tne Indianapolis Gun Club did not secure the 
coveted Grand American Handicap without opposi- 
tion. The St. Louis Gun Club and the Denver Gun 
Club bid strongly for the event. The St. Louis Club 
claimed that tbe tourney should go to that city In 
view of the World's Fair there next ytar. The club 
offered $5000 to bo added to the most important 
events if the handicap should be awjrded to St. 
Louie. The Denver Club also made tempting offers, 
but they wero not considered. The Indianapolis Club 
offered no added purses, but it had the co-operation 
of about one hundred of the most prominent shooteis 
of the country, and the Interstate Association con- 
sidered the application. ' If St. Louis business men 
were willing to donate a handsome sum to be added 
to the purses, it seems as if the business men and the 
hotels of this city, "says the Journal, "sbould con- 
tribute a suitable purse lo be added to one of the 
events. If the Indianapolis Gun Club makes the 
tournament a big success it has every assurance that 
the Grand American Handicap will'be given to this 
city for several years to come." 

It is quite probable that the big shoot will be made 
an international tournament, so as to induce the 
foreign shooters coming to this country next year to 
participate. This could be done by giving such an 
event in connection with the Grand American Handi- 
cap, the latter being open to American shooters only. 
With nearly 500 shooters, it is estimated who will be 
present in the city during the tournament, theie 
promises to be lively times on the firing lice. Success 
to the Indianapolis Gun Club and the Grand Ameri- 
can Handicap. i. 

Chicago Show. 

The Chicago Kennel Club has decided to hold ils 
annual show on March 17th, 18th and 19ih, at tbe 
First Regiment armory. The kennel club stati s, ex- 
plicitly, that the coming dog show is intt nded wholly 
to advance the class of dogs, and that revenue cuts a 
secondary figure. 

To judge from the advance order for entry blacks, 
the March show will be the largest ever held in Chi- 
cago. Over 1000 individual entiles, it is estimated, 
will be received — that is to say, 1000 dogs will be 
benched, to say nothing of classes in which one dog 
will be entered perhaps three or four times, so it is 
claimed by a Chicago exchange. 

Tbe officers of the club are: H. J. Cassady, Presi- 
dent; P. Heorlci, Jr., Treasurer; S. Summerfield, 
Secretary. 

United States Fish Commissioner Bowers of Wash- 
ington has made an offer to the State of Oregon to 
take over and operate the great salmon hatchery at 
Ontario, Or., to its full capacity provided the State 
will agree to enlarge it, as may be required. 

The Ontario plant has just been completed by the 
State and this season turned out 20,000,000 eggs. The 
Government at present operates three plants in Ore- 
gon. Clackamas, Big White Salmon and Little 
White Salmon, the output of these three latter 
hatcheries this season being 34,500,000 epgs.

The Bloodhound. 



Not since the S. F. K. C. show here In '98 have we 
seen anytbiag at all approaching a typical Blood- 
hound. At that show four g^ood ones were benched 
by the Mount Shasta kennels. Two kennels of ten or 
twelve alleged Bloodhounds came under our inspec- 
tion at the Los Angeles show two years ago. Several 
of the dogs were kept out of the ring at our request, 
for they were not Bloodhounds and for those 
brought in, although they showtd to a little extent 
some Blood houed crossing, the best we could do was 
to award a ribbon in a kennel contest, not because 
they were Bloodhounds. 

These very dogs had a £:reat reputation in the 
Southern county &i man and varmint trailers. So 
have other mongrel packs in ditTerent parts of the 
Co.i9t. Their miD-huniingquiilities, notwithstanding 
senjalional stories in the columns of the dailies, have 
lnv>iriably turned out to be a my ibical quantity. We 
do not at present know of a breeder on the Coast wbo 
has a strain of dogs at all approaching the typical 
standard of the breed. VV hat has become of the Uogs 
and their progeny shown by the .Mt. Shasta Kennels 
we do not know, at all events they were very good 
dogs and should have been appreciated. Possibly, 
the fact, that long-eared yellow mongrels, commonly 
and erroneously called Missouri hounus, could be pur- 
cba^ed as BloodUounds fur a few dullurs had sume- 
tbing to do witb ilie passing ol a well established 
Blooohouud kennel. 

We are ol tbe impression that Bloodhounds can be 
traiaed to trail aud dud a human being — the perpe- 
trator of a crime, (ugiiivo from justice or a porsuu

"O'er all, (lie bloodhound boasts superior skill, ; 
To sceat, to view, lo turn, and boldly kill— 
Hisfeliows' vain alarms rejects wi ill scorn, 
True to tbe master's vuice aud learned noru; 
His nostrils olt. if ancient fame sings true, 
Traced the sly telon thro' the tainted dew; 
Unce snulT'd, ne follows with unaltered aim. 
Nor odours lure him from tne chosen game; 
Deep-muuth'd, he thunders, and iuHamed he views, 
bprings on relentless, and to death pursues."

"And though the villain 'scape a while, be feels 
Slow vengeance like a blooduound at his heels." 

— Swift. 

"'Count La Cuuteulx deCanteleu ( without doubt the 
greatest living autburliy on the subject) is quite 
positive that tbe Bluodbound, or Sleutbhound (and 
His predecessor, the Talbot), were derived from the 
St. Hubert, from St. Hubert's Abbey in the Ardennes. 
This breed dates from the earliest ages, and certainly 
existed in tbe time of tbe Gauls. In tbe eighth 
century it was known as the Flemish hound, aud was 
divided into two sub-divisions — the black and the 
white. The most highly esteemed were the black 
(really Black and-Tanj, and the Abbots of St. 
Hubert's Abbey maintained the bretd very carefully, 
io memory of taeir founder. These hounds possessed 
great hunting qualities, particularly that of Keeping 
true to the scent. 

'They were deep-throated, fine noted hounds, 
showing great powers of endurance, but not great 
swiftness, and were very courageous and daring. 
They were chiefly prized as limiers for unharboring 
the wild boar. They were generally of a slightly 
Feddisb-black, with tan marks over the eyes, and on 
the legs and feet, long pendulous ears, well-shaped, 
but rather long loins, not so high on the leg as the 
Normandy hound." 

The Abbots of St. Hubert presented three couples 
of hounds yearly to the King of IVance as a token of 
allegiance, and they were used as limiers for wolf and 
boar. 

The Count says: "The characteristic features and 
qualiflcatlons of this famous breed seem to tave been 
much better preserved in England in the Blood- 
hound." 

The Count took the greater part of Lord Wolver- 
ton's pack In 1881, but he had been hunting Blood- 
hounds for some years previous to this, and his 
kennel list for season 1876 and 1877 tells of 

Names remembered, 
Because they, living not, can ne'er be dead " 

— such names as Holford's Regent and Matchless, 
Becker's Brenda and Duchess, Cowen's Druid and 
Dewlap, Pease's Druid, Jenning's Tiger, Fury, and 
Druid, the latter sold to Prince Napoleon. The best 
of the best of our hounds to-day are full of this 
blood. 

The Count never tires of singing the praises of 
these hounds "I have never seen more beautiful 
hounds, nor keener ones. The way they killed deer 
and wild boar was admirable, but unfortunately the 
boars killed too many for me." 

In 11)00 the count had in his pack a three-year-oid 
dog descended from the Bloodhounds, but with a 
slight cross, which he bought back on account of his 
superb qualities. He was very fast, had a grand 
voice, and was extraordinarily courageous and power- 
ful. He could throw down a very large boar, but has 
probably been killed by this time. 

In France it is the custom on St. Hubert's Day 
(November .Sd) for the priest to bless the pack col- 
lectively after ma.^s, and to bless the oldest member 
of the bunt, the oldest horse, and the oldest hound, 
and the priest attaches a red rosette to the button* 



hole of the man and to the neck cf tbe horse, and of 
the hound . 

In one of the pedigrees in the kennel list mentioned 
above appears a bt. Hubert hound, and this must 
have aeeu one of the last of the breed, as it became 
extinct about that time. 

St. Huberts were brought over to England at the 
time of the Conquest, and also when Henry IV. sent 
some over as presents to .lames I. 

The old writers seem all agreed that the speciality 
of the Bloodhound is that he has a moredelicate nose 
and can hunt a lighter scent then any other hound, 
and that he is especially "free from change, "as the 
French say— i e, that he will never change from the 
hunted animal to a fresh one. 

In Barbour's Bruce, a poem written In the four- 
teenth century, we are told : 

"A sleuth hund had he thar alsua. 
Sa gud that wald chang for na thing." 

And again: 

"The kingis sent, ho wryat rycht wclll, 
That ho wauld chaung It for na thing." 

The Sporting Dictionary, published 1803, says: 
"The bounds desiinta to one particular kind of 
business or pursuit, as Bloodhounds, were never 
brought into tbe chase for a constancy with the pack 
for tbe I romotion of sport, but were preserved and 
supported (as a constable or Bow-street runner of the 
present dai ) for the purpose of pursuit and detection, 
wherever ibey could, with cui tainty, be laid on in 
good time upon the scent or footsteps of the object it 
was Ibougbt expedient to pursue. Deer-stealing, for 
instance, was so very common a century since to 
what is at present, that the game and park keepers 
in most parts oi tbe kingdom were in a kind of eternal 
watching and nocluul warfare; the hounds we are 
now detci ibing were then constantly trained to tbe 
practice, and so closely adhered to the scent they 
were once laid upon, tbat (oven after a very long and 
tedious pursuiti detection was certain and inevitable; 
from this pei'severing instinct and infallibility, they 
acquire the appellation ihey have so long retained; 
and an ott'endiug criminal not a century since, was 
absolutely conceived to bo positively takt n, and half- 
convicted, the very moment a Bloodhound could be 
obtained." 

In Horseand the Hound, by Nimrod (Chas. Apperloy) 
published 1842, we read the Bloodhound 
■'possessed the property of unerringly tracing the 
scent he was laiu upon, amongst a hundred others; 
which evinces a superiority, at all events a peculi- 
arity, of nose entirely unknown to ourlighter hounds 
of any breed. The want of being able to distinguish 
the huntsd fox from a fresh-found one is the bane 
of English fox hunting, and here are not wanting 
those who think that, in the breedin^r of the modern 
Foxhound, the minor points of hish form and blood 
are more frequently considered than they should be 
in preference of a regard to nose." 

In border warfare the Sleuth-hound played a most 
important part. When the beacon-tire blazed, tbe 
country rose; all men, on horse or foot, were bound 
to "follow the fray with Hue and Cry" upon the pain 
of death: the Slogan A-as sounded, and the pursuit by 
Hot Trodd rapidly made. The laws of Elizabeth in 
150.'! still permitted the custom of the Marches of 
pursuit by the aggrieved parties by "Lawful Trodd 
with Hound and Horn, with Hue and Cry, and all 
other accustomed manner of fresh pursuit, for the 
recovery of their goods spoiled. " The offender could 
be la wfully pursued in Hot Trodd by the warden of 
either kingdom into the opposite realm, and, if over- 
taken and apprehended, brought back. The pursuit 
was often followed with a lighted turf carried on a 
spear. 

The Sleuth-hound of that time was so heavy and 
slow, that he was taken up and carried on the saddle 
bow for a time when the pursuers came to soft ground, 
where the trail was visible. If the horse of that 
period was faster than the' Bloodhound, the latter 
must Indeed have been slow. 

During the first half of the last century the Blood- 
hound seems to have fallen out of use either for man 
hunting or for the hunting of animals. He became 
very scarce, but the institution of dog shows fortU' 
nately saved him from total extinction. His majestic 
appearance and docile disposition gained blm many 
frlendu, though amongst ihe uninformed he is still 
sometimes regarded as a ferocious monster endowed 
with miraculous attributes, and capable of pursuing 
his victim guceessfully under any conditions till 
caught, when he would certainly tear him limb from 
limb. This may probably be accountrd for partly by 
his name, which is calculated to inspire awe, and 
partly by slave hunting tales in Uncle Tom'K Cabin 
and similar books. As a matter of fact, the hounds 
used for slave hunting in tbe Southern States of 
America, although called Blood hoiindp, were not 
Bloodhounds at ail, but merely the Foxhound of the 
country, sometimes crossed with the Cuban Mastiff 
or, as it was sometimes called the Cuban Bloodhound. 
The latter animal*had no pretension to be called a 
Bloodhound, or in fact a hound at all, and was more 
like an inferior Great Dane than anything else, 
though it is not believed that it ever attained to any 
really fixed type. 

As regards the name of Bloodhound the Count r.i0 
Couteiilx believeathat when fox bun ling in something 
like its present form was instituted, it was found that 
the Sleuth-hound was not fast enough for the purpose 
and tbe present Foxhound was evolved from various 
material, and that about this time it became usual in 
speaking of the old hound of the country, to call him 
the Bloodhound , moaning the hound of pure blood 
(as we should spoak of a blood horse), to distinguish 
him from the now hound or Foxhound. 

The slave hunting hounds were trained to pull down 
their man, but It wonld not bo pospible to do this with 
the Blooflhound, and it is a daily occurrence to hunt 
an entire stranger with pure Bloodhounds. When 
they haveovertaken him, and ascertained that he was 
the object of pursuit, they manifest no further inter- 
est D him. 



Of late years the Bloodhound has becD bred on 
more galloping lines, aud is a very much faster bound 
than be was in moss-trooping days, and liis feet are 
rounder aud more knuckled up. His oburaclerfstio 
head formation has boon well maintained, and the 
general average of exoelleDcels greater than It was 
fifty years ago. Untortunalely H has remained a 
rare breed, and is in cutniiaraiively few hands, and is 
consequently much inbred, with the natural result 
that uihlempor is a more dangerous aisease than in 
some other breeds of hounds Uut-erob8es have been 
made from time to time, and have been valuable in at 
once restoring hardiness of constitution. In \><X2 the 
writer introduced across with the .Southern hound. 
About IS.'^.') Mr. Mark Beaufoy crossed with a hound 
of French breeding, and Lieulenant-ColonclJoynion 
is experimenting with a Ciriffon Vendee, and is now 
about to make his third cross. In .\nioriea Mr. Lewis 
Strong is introducing a cross of American Foxhound 
with great success, and he is also about to make his 
third cross. 

The mostsuccessful infusion of new blood, however, 
was that introduced by Mr. E. Nichols about 1H76. 
Until a comparatively short time since, each keeper 
in the New Forest was required to keep a couple of 
hounds on his walk. They called them Talbots, and 
th«y were evidently degenerate Bloodhounds. One 
keeper named Majnard on the Beaulicu walk used 
to boast that the breed had been handed down in his 
family from father to son for more than .'lOO year*. 
Some fifty or sixty years ago Mr. Thomas Nevlll 
Chilland, near Winchester, procured one or two 
couples of these hounds from Primer, the keeper on 
the Boldrewood walk, and from them originated a 
small pack. Mr. Nevlll had a fancy to get his hounds 
as black as possible— marked like Black and Tan Ter- 
riers, in fact — and so they were at his death. Mr. 
Nevlll hunted, deer, fox, hare, a tame jackal, which 
used to be bunted and tben return to tbe hearthrug 
when the hunt was over — anything, in fact, for in the 
off season he hunted water rati 

About the time of Mr Nevill's death Nichols bought 
a bitch named Countess from this kennel, and from 
her bred a bitch called Restless, by Mr E. Reynold's 
Ray's Victor. Restless was sent to that grand dog 
Luath XL, and produced thegrandest litter of Blood- 
hounds ever bred up to that time. Mr. Nichols reared 
ten or eleven of this litter lo about twelve months 
old, and then sold most of them for long prices. Un- 
fortunately some of the best of these died without 
having been exhibited; but amongst tbe rcmainin'g 
ones were Bravo, Lawyer, Champion, Napier and the 
three bitches of the litter — Belladonna, Hebe and 
Diana, all champions. Tbe success of this out cross 
was so evident that it is impossible to find a pure bred 
Bloodhound to-day without much of this blood in his 
veins. 

The antiquity of the breed and its consequent pre- 
potency makes across out a fur less perilous experi- 
ment than theyoung breeder is apt to ini.nglne. Con- 
stitution is recovered at once, and retained for seme 
generations, although the new blood soon becomes a 
negligible quantity, and whatever the breed may be 
it must neceesarily be so much newer than tbe Blood- 
hound that its influence on type is very trifling, and 
is soon stamped out. 

In the seventies Lord Wolverton hunted turned out 
red deer in Dorsetshire with a pack of Bloodhounds, 
and Whyte-Melville, in his Jiidiuy liccollcclioiis, thus 
describes them: 

''Full, sonorous and musical, it is not extravagant 
to compare these deep-mouthed notes with the peal of 
an organ in a cathedral. Yet they run a tremendous 
pace. Stride, courage and condition (the last essen- 
tial requiring constant care), enable them to sustain 
such speed over the open as to make a good horse 
look foolish; whilst among enclosures they charge the 
fences in line like a squadron of heavy dragoons. 
Yet, for all this fire and mettle in chase, they are sad 
cowards under pressure from a crowd. A whip 
cracked hurriedly, a horse galloping in their track, 
even at an injudicious rate, will maketbe best of them 
shy and sulky for half the day." 

When Lord Wolverton gave them up. Lord Car- 
rington hunted them in Buckinghamshire for one 
season, and then the greater part of tbe pack was 
taken over by Count Le Couteulx de Canteleu. 

The Bloodhound was originally chiefly used as a 
llmier and for man-hunting, and for these purposes be 
is far superior to any other breed of. hound, as he is a 
natural man-hunter, is able to hunt a far colder scent 
than any other breed, and Is of all breeds vhe least 
liable to change. 

The late Mr. J. Nevlll Fltt (one of our most reliable 
authorities) says : 

"Whether the Bloodhound can really hunt a lower 
scent than ordinary hounds will, I fancy, always be a 
moot point, there is no doubt but he has un exceed- 
ingly fine nose, and nature has end owe d him with the 
patience to make the most of it. My own idea is that 
a Bloodhound simply hunts a coldorscent than a Fox- 
hound hecdv.ie lie takex more jminK. He stoops for a 
scent when the other is driving ahead. It is like the 
quick school boy and the plodding one; they are each 
very well in their place — that of the Foxhound being 
to chase his victim to death as quickly as possible, the 
Bloodhound to bunt it down by patience and perse- 
verance. 

"I do not consider these good hounds for a pack, 
because each hunts for himsr<lf, and they do not look 
to and depend on each other. Moreover, to form an 
efficient i)ack, hounds must at times be taken hold of 
by the huntsman, and turned by the whiii. This 
Bloodhounds do not like I heard Lord Wolverton 
say the same, and my own experience bears it out. 
They are too independent, or <'lcver, if the term is 
more agreeable to their admirers; ar'l I f(ar I must 
add that cleverne.'is Is at times so gt < iit as to border 
very closely on contrariness. 1 1 is not ho much inferi- 
ority of nose, as want of patience and method in using 
it, that debars most dogs, more particularly hounds, 
from hunting as cold a scent as a Bloodhound . Let 
him work and drive like the Foxhound, and he would

^"'•My opinion of a Bloodhound is that he is out of 
place in a pacic; but that, used as the Hon. Grantley 
Berkeley used Druid, either to drive game to the rifle 
or retrieve it when wounded, they are invaluable. 
Here, using only one, or a couple, as the case may be, 
their cleverness and independence has full scope; they 
can use their intellect without intorference from a 
sportsman, take time to puzzle out a scent when at 
fault, and hunt after their own manner; but this is 
not what we want in a pack." , „, j,. j

In the Galt»e mountains. County Tipperary, the 
Bloodhound is found to be of great service in driving 
fallow deer to the guns. These mountains are very 
thickly wooded, and doer-stalking, as id Scotland, is 
quite impracticable. Eight or ten beaters are used, 
and the rifl.is are posted at likely crossing places, and 
the woods beaten back wards and forwards, the deer 
generally breaking back. The keeper who hascharge 
of the Bloodhound walks on a ride in line with the 
beat, leading the hound. Directly a good buck is seen 
the hound is put on the line, still on the lead. The 
keeper curries a signal horn, with which to intimate 
tothegun* the finding of a likely deer, and then the 
interesting hound work begins, though it is no sine- 
cure for the keeper. With this method the guns are 
pretty certain of a shot before long. The hounds do 
not give tongue, except on viewing deer."

Hunting Jack Rabbits. 

The hunting of jack rabbits as a profession, the 
jacks so obtained being sent to the c*mmon market, 
is probably as singular an occupation as exists in 
California. It is a fact not generally known that this 
business employs about 200 men, the site of their 
operations being chiefly in the two great valleys of 
the State, the Sacramento and San Joaquin, writes 
James Marqueen. 

It is in the latter county, however, that the larger 
number of these hunters hursue their callicg, no less 
than sixteen of them living in and around the town of 
Modesto alone. The market for the output of these 
professionalists is San Francisco. The rabbits are 
shipped thence by express. This fact limits the 
territorial extent of the operations of these hunters 
within the State, as they cannot work at such a 
distance from San Francisco that the express charges 
on the rabbits shipped will exceed a definite rate per 
pound. The rabbits bring from $1.15 to $1.75 per 
dozen, from which the express charges and 10 per 
cent commission must be deducted. They areshipped 
in sacks, each sack containing thirty. It may be 
said, therefore, that a rabbit will bring to the hunter 
an average of 10 cents, and to earn a mil imum of $3 
a day he must shoot an average of thirty each day. 
This number, however, is greatly exceeded. A 
hunter regards himself in poor luck if he does not 
kill fifty in a day. M. B. Carter, one of the hunters 
of Modesto, together with an associate, starttd shoot- 
ing on September 1st last; up lo the present lime they 
estimate I bey have killed and shipped 7000 rabbits. 
Larger aggregates than this are made, as in the 
recited instaLce the men have not been shooting 
regularly during the period named. 

The rabbit hunter is provided with a light wagon, 
on which there is built a box for the reception of his 
game; a pair of good, strong, lively horses; two dogs, 
a double-barreled fowling piece and a quantity of 
shells. Thus equipped he moves along roads and 
over fields in quest of the jacks. His animals are all 
trained to the business. As soon as bis horses see a 
rabbit they stop; the hunter then shoots from the 
wagon, the horses paying absolutely no regard to the 
report of his gun. HisUogs do not attempt to run 
down the rabbits that escape, unless it be such as are 
wounded; these latter they chase until the jacks are 
overcome, when they kill them and bring them to the 
wagon. Jacks are generally numerous over the areas 
traversed by the hunters; their common habitat is 
among the stubble of the old wheat or barley fields, 
or sheltered by the bunches of tumble weed. Under 
such cover they will remain perfectly still until the 
hunter's team is close 'ipon them; then they will give 
a jump and a bound and be off — unless they are 
stopped by the quick and unerring aim of the hunter. 
The dogs which accompany the hunter are Setters. 
They follow the scent of the rabbit and approach him 
where he is squatting until they are within good 
shooting distance, when they stretch in a springing 
attitude upon the ground and remain perfectly still 
until the hunter comes up, and, advancing a step or 
two in direction of the jack, jumps him from his 
cover. 

Frequently surprising shots are made. Mr. Carter 
states that he has upon several occasions killed as 
many as five jacks with a discharge of both barrels of 
his gun. Does are commonly accompanied by the 
bucks; of the latter there may be half a dozen in 
compaiiy of a single doe. This bunch of rabbits will 
move along the tracks in the wheat fields made by 
the wheels of the combined harvesters, and in these 
paths will approach a team to within shooting dis- 
tance. The experienced hunter, when he sees a 
band of rabbits approaching in this manner, quietly 
awaits until they have approached such a distance 
that they are aroused to his presence then he lifts his 
piece and fires; generally he will get the bunch. 

Rabbits have the trait of congregating in numbers 
of from ten to twenty under cover of a patch of weeds; 
one shooting at an exposed rabbit while they are so 
bunched, may unconsciously kill several, 1 e will at 
least be greatly astonished ta see spring out of the 
cover a large number of frightened and active 
creatures, who show him their backs at many dif- 
ferent angles, and who bound and scamper ofiF and in 
a moment disappear. At this juncture the hunter 
does some rapid shooting. Half a dozen or more 
shots fired In quicic succession will bring the rabbits 
to the huddling position; then they will become ter- 
rorized and court safety in hiding. Then the hunter 
dismounts, leaving his horses to stand, and begins to 
shoot the rabbits as rapidly as his dog jumps them 
up. Bringing his bag to the wagon, he disembowels 
eaab rabbit, hanging its hind legs apart on hooks at 
the baolc of the box on his vehicle in order to get 
them In shape for thli operation; all of the game 
being so treated, he tosses them into the box, re- 
mountsand drives on. 

Every nigh'. In the camp the hunter loads his shells 
In preparation for the work of next day. Reuses 
brass shells, which may be reloaded ad infinitum, and 
the ammunition cost is reduced to a minimum. It is 
the work of several hours to do this, so it is often late 
at night before he gets to bed. He sacks his rabbits, 
bringing sacks with him for the purpose, and ships 
them to San Fi-ancisco from any station on the rail- 
road which he may pass. 

Rabbits have been, and are to-day, an awful scourge 
to the farmers of the State, and especially to those of 
these great wheat growing valleys. It is in the San 
Joaquin that the great rabbit drives occurred, 
about which 80 much used to be written a few years 
ago' Whole communities, driven to desperation by 
the ravages of these pests, would turn out in a grand 
countryside assemblage, and on horseback, on foot. 



in carts, buggies and wagons, they would march 
along, moving the rabbits toward a wire corral tome 
miles distant, into which the pests would ultimatelv 
bo driven and killed. Tho presence of the hunters 
has of late years rendered rabbit drives unnecessary 
asthe animals have been kept down to a cousidt rable 
extent. Farmers sufTer loss of grain at the present 
time, but the loss is not so great as formerly. 

It is unlikely, however, that the rabbits will ever 
be hunted out, even within the small radius of profit- 
able shipping to San Francisco. This is owing lo the 
tremendous reproductive powers of the animal 
They begin breeding in March and continue brineinc 
forth unremittingly every three weeki until Septem- 
ber. Their first litters are small, being but one or 
two; but these rapidly increate in numbers until 
along in the summer they are multiplying the rabbit 
population of the valleys by from twelve to fifteen 
young at a time. The mothers. nest in old badger 
holes several feet under the ground, so they are 
secure from attack, except from gopher snakts and 
ground owls, which kill their annual quotas of these 
creatures, whose only defense is flight. A number 
are destroyed by coyotes, which, sitce the repeal of 
the bounty law, are again becoming numerous; but 
these naturalenemies are wholly unable to cf pe wiih 
the prodigious increase of the jacks, and were it not 
for the human hunters few kinds of vegetation could 
be raised in some sections of the State unprotected 
by rabbit-proof fences. 

The rabbits sent to San Francisco are nearly all 
handled by one firm; it is a large commission house 
dealing in game of all kinds; they probably handle a 
million or more rabbits in a year. 

The State Game Officials are Vigilant. 

We had occasion two weeks ago to praise the Fish 
Commissioners and their corps of deputies for an un- 
precedented vigilance in tho pursuit of game law 
violators, and at the same time we deprecated the 
source of many rumors to the effect that, locally at 
least, the law was fractured with an impunity that 
created much comment. 

We were correct in one assertion— that the deputy 
commissioners were (and are) keen after the very (':') 
few delinquents, foreigners generally. But to our 
utter surprise our doubts as to the sale and holding 
of illegal quantities of game and the capture o.f ducks 
with nets, etc., were apparently not well founded 
Within the past two weeks two arrests were made of 
dealers who had a larger number of ducks in posses- 
sion than the legal quota as well asa numberof dozen 
of quail for sale. 

The first convictions for the taking of ducks with 
nets in violation of the statute was made this week. 
Two men, Vincent Geri and Salvatore Olievert, were 
arrested by Deputies Cross and Lee under sus- 
picious circumstances. They were known to 
be net fishermen and were taken with 152 ducks 
in their possession. Their nets, (and a few fish) were 
in the boat but they had no firearms and there was 
nothing in their boat to indicate that the game had 
been shot and everything pointed to the fact that the 
birds had been captured by drowning. 

Prom the published statements, the fellows had a 
good case and possibly might have won out had they 
fought the charges. They were caught red-handed 
however and the practice has been so universalamong 
that class that they plead guilty and were fined $25 
each. Now that the crusade has been tardily started, 
it will not be much of an effort to stamp out this par- 
ticular system of game law violation. 

Two more delinquents wore taken into the toils of 
the official net for catching crabs under theleffal size, 
the men were fined $20 each. 

The crab supply of this city has now become so 
limited, as against the plenteous supply of large 
crabs in years past, that a crab eight inches in length 
is almost a rarity. The rapacity of the dealers and 
persistent fishing all the year round has decreased 
our local supply to almost nothing. 

Shipments daily by the thousand to Chicago and 
other points East is really the cause of the almost 
total decimation of the crab crop.

THE FARM.^ 



Improve Your Turkeys. 

Never before in the hietory of tiiis 
country bas there been such a scarcity of 
turlteyB for Thanksgivinij and Chriatmaa 
as lias been the case tliis season. Never 
before has such an effort been put forth 
to secure a full supply, nor was there ever 
known before to be such a failure in 
raising them. By far the greatest danger 
we confront in growing turkeys is the 
weakness that comes from too much in- 
breeding. People throughout the country 
have neglected introducing new blood into 
tneir flocks. This must be speedily done 
in all tJie flocks, or turkey breeding as an 
industry will be ruine 1. It is useless to 
hope to obtain new blood of a proper 
quality in one's own neighborliood. Send 
ofl" miles and miles away across the 
country to secure new and vigorous blood. 
Many of tlie diseases that come to turkeys 
young and old. such as blackhead, leg 
weakness and delicate constitutions, may 
all be blamed to careless inbreeding. 
There never has been any reasonable 
excuse for this, and with the present 
opportunities for enlightenment and in- 
formation it has become more than in- 
excusable. 

The practice of selecting and selling to 
market the largest and quickest maturing 
young turkeys IS the second evil in turkey 
growing that needs correction. Two year 
old hens, or rather hens in their second 
laying season, are by far the beat for pro- 
ducing poults. Never keep the small or 
under-sized turkey hens. Nor is it best 
to depend too much on very large over- 
sized ones if you have them. The strong, 
vigorous, medium-sized hens in their 
second season of laying are the best that 
one can possibly have for laying the eggs 
fr >m which to produce the young turkeys. 

One-year-old toms of good size, heavy 
bones and vigorous constitutions are the 
best to select. Do not be induced to be- 
lieve that your neighbor can give you any 
relief through an interchange of toms — 
unleiB by chance he has lately introduced 
into hii flock a cro^a of a wild turkey torn, 
as many have done. There were at Madi- 
son Square Garden last winter a dozen or 
more young toms that had come from a 
direct cross of a wild turkey torn with 
Bronze turkey hens. These young toms 
were ! tamped with the vigor and strength 
of the wild ancestor, and we know of 
some who purchased them that have been 
quite successful with turkeys the past 
season. 

Do not imagine that wild turkeys are 
less vigorous or harder to raise to maturity 
than others. It is possible to have just as 
much strength, vigor and constitution in 
the white turkeys aa in any other breed or 
variety. MorS attention should be eiven 
to growing the black turkey, as well as to 



the Narragansetl turkey. We have seen 
some flocks of buff turkeys, or rather of a 
cinnamon or reddish brown, that were 
almost as large as the bronze or Narragan- 
sett. These are said by Rhode Islanders 
to be a very steady, vigorous turkey for 
market purposes. We encourage greater 
attention being paid to the Narragansett, 
the black, the buff and the white, because 
we should like to have all the different 
breeds tried in as many localities as pos- 
sible throughout the country where tur- 
keys are grown ; so that the merit of each 
in each section may be thoroughly tested. 
No doubt some turkeys will do better in 
some localities than others will. 

The black turkey is said to be best suited 
to a climate like Texas. The Narragan- 
sett has been most successfully grown in 
the bleak climate of New England. The 
Bronze turkey seems to thrive better in 
some localities than others. All this 
should be taken up and studied by the 
turkey growers throughout the United 
States and Canada. A.bove all things, do 
not , neglect to hunt] up and find new, 
strong, Jiealthy aad vigorous blood to re- 
new your flocks. In the future never 
breed close, and always select the best 
females for your own breeding stock, and 
sell the rest to market. — Country ({entle- 
man. 

The Thermometerin the Dairy. 

Of all external inlluenees, temperature 
is the most important factor to be con- 
sidered in handling milk and milk 
j products, says Inland Farmer. It works 
the most notable changes and influences 
more than any other factor the final 
quality and value of the product. 

The creamery worker and butter-maker 
are fully aware of this fact. All their 
operations in handling milk or cream are 
gauged with the unmost accuracy by 
means of the thermometer, doing nothing 
by guess, leaving nothing to chance. 

On the farm, however, changes of tem- 
perature or condition of weather, are in 
most cases regarded with the greatest un- 
concern. And vet, the milk as produced 
on the farm is the first and most import- 
ant link in the chain of manufacturing 
processes. 

The finished product, whether that be 
cream or butter, cheese or bottled milk, 
can be no better than the milk from 
which it is made. 

Milk is without exception, the most per- 
ishable product of the farm and the dairy- 
man who handles it with that fact con- 
stantly in mind will obtain the best re- 
sults. While the dairyman who <llBre- 
gards it, will meet with failures and heap 
troubles upon his head. 

Sour milk is the bane of the milk ship- 
per in summer, and often tiie moment 
spent in taking the temperature of the 
milk before it leaves the farm, may he 
well spent. If the day is warm or sultry, 
a little study will ((uickly tell whether it 
is safe to ship or whether it is better to 
run the milk over the cooler a second 
time, in order to reduce the temperature 



to the point of safety. There is no possi- 
ble excuse for milk souring in transit 
during the months of December, .January 
and Fehrnary. Yet this happens, as we 
know, and the dairyman is never willing 
to assume the blame. 

A thermometer placed at a location 
with favorable light either in the dairy- 
room or on the porch of the residence or 
in the barn, may be consulted in passing 
by, without even stopping. 

It is a good habit, that of reading the 
thermometer. One to be cultivated by a 
man w^io makes the production of milk 
his business, and handles it every day in 
the year. He should at all times consult 
the thermometer as a guide to his opera- 
tions. The condition of the weather and 
temperature of the air exert a combined 
influence on the condition of tlie milk. 
The man who habitually looks into the 
little things, the details of his business, 
observes these influences and adjusts his 
operations accordingly. He asks and 
answers these questions from day to day. 

At what temperature, varying, of course, 
witl) the seasons, is it safe to ship my 
milk? How effective is my cooler in re- 
ducing the temperature of the milk from 
blood heat to that temperature? What 
is the difference of temperature between 
the air and the shipped milk? How long 
is my milk in transit? And must I not 
take greater precautions against souring 
on a long than on a short haul? 



Farm Notes. 



The exports of cattle, hogs and sheep 
for the first eleven months of YM',i were 
$.33,922,000 against 122,000,000 for the 
corresponding months of last year- 

The exports of breadstuffs for the 
eleven months of this year ending with 
November were $11 760,000, an incresEe 
of $8,000,000 over the corresponding 
months of last year. 

A farmer who plans to grow several 
crops each season is more apt to succeed 
than the one who devotes his whole time 
I to one orop. If he knows how to grow 
only one crop, he had better learn to 
plant others. 

One reason tools do not srive good 
satisfaction and wear out soon, is that 
they are not good to begin with. Buy 
only the best, and take the best of care 
of them, and keep them sharp and 
under shelter, 

California raisin crop last year was 
110,000,000 pounds. The State practi- 
cally supplies the country with raislDS. 
We imported last year about 0,000, 00(t 
pounds of raisins, but exported almost 
an equal quantity. 

A man who has boon active and in- 
dustrious all of his life will find it more 
difficult to stop than to keep on with 
his work. The time never comes when 
he wants to sit around and do nothing. 
When he stops work he falls off in 
weight and his appetite fails. 

The general principles in farming are 
the same as in selling dry goods, gro- i 



ceries, or anything else. These are, a 
knowledge of what the market needp, 
when it wants it, and furnishing it at 
that time, in such quantities and at such 
prices that the consumer will buy it. 

During the last fiscal year 1,729,100 
doses of blackleg vaccine were distributed 
among cattle growers. The Bureau of 
Animal Industry is publishing a table 
which shows that of the animals vaccin- 
ated, whicli were not already in a practi- 
cally dying condition, only about half of 
one per cent died. 

Wlien ground is so uneven that it 
washe3 badly it should be terraced. The 
Agricultural Department has a bulletin 
on ditches and ditcliing which may be had 
upon application. The sheet-water sys- 
te:a is practiced by some. Where fields 
are very hilly, something needs to be 
done, or they will run down the hill and 
into the creek. 

The seed investigation of the Depart- 
ment of Agriculture; have shown that 
large <iuantities of trefoil and other prac- 
tically worthless seed are bsing imported 
for the adulteration of alfalfa and other 
seeds. About 450,000 pounds of Canadian 
blue grass seed are imported, the chief use 
of which is to adulterate the higher priced 
Kentucky blue grass seed. 

A report is now in course of preparation 
by the Department of Agriculture on 
various tobacco diseases. Tobacco experts 
have been studying the subject for up- 
wards of a year, and besides laboratery 
work, an expert {of the Department, Dr. 
McKenney, has visited the principle to- 
bacco growing areas and studied the dis- 
tribution and behavior of the diseases in 
the field

The Joy of Knowing. 

TBreeders Gazette] 

There was a day when the farm was a 
little world. The farmer did it all, knew 
it all. He sold little, he bought little. His 
men were paid in kind. A day's work was 
exchange<J for a bushel of wheat. If the 
farmer owned hia soil he could hardly fail 
to live well. He could even make money 
if he had tho advantage of living close to 
cities. There were no railways. The 
prairies and the deserts were untamed. 
The farmer then did not know how badly 
he did things He Had not found out how 
costlv many of his practices were. His 
cattle were fed and fattened when four to 
six years old. His wethers must be four 
years old. There was even a "four-year- 
old" club in England, the purpose of 
whicti was to maintain the practice of 
eating only (our-vear-old mutton. Rota- 
tion of crops was little practiced. Fertil- 
ity was maintained, if at nil, by careful 
saving of manures. In that point our 
fathers «er*-..ften better than their sons. 

While the (ikl-faahioned farmer sold 
little be al«o bought little. He did not go 
into the markets for feeding cattle or 
sheep, lie did not go on the market lor 
foodstuffs and fertilizers. He kept cows, 
the maids milked and made butter, the 
calves were grown on the place ; they were 
finally fattened and sold. The farmer did 
not dream of shipping them to market 
himself. He did not much watch markets. 
He knew little about sources of supply in 
feeding cattle or sheep or as to ages more 
profitable to buy. Th«re was then much 
leas need that the farmer shou d be an 
educated business man. There was need 
that he should be economical, saving, 
skilled in all manner of trades and arts, 
for he made his own tools, soap, shingles, 
candles, clothes, houses. He was a car- 
penter, builder, skilled axeman, swung 
the scythe and cradle, half-soled his own 
boots. 

The Bchools were ruder then. The 
farmer's son worked morningand evening, 
going generally late to school, learned to 
read, spell, cypher, a little of geography. 
What he learned did not wean hira away 
from the soil, he read steady-going papers 
by the fire of winter's evenings and good 
old-fashioned books. To-day the whole 
system of schooling is changed. Boys are 
pushed faster. They know as much at 
ten as we did at fifteen. There is no 
longer any time for them to do work on 
t'le farm before or after school hours. 
Tliey bring their books home from school. 
They get litile thus far in their books to 
lead them to think of the farm or of agri- 
culture. We will not say that modern 
school systems are inferior to the old but 
we do believe there is too much divorcing 
of brain work, study and hand work. 
Bo}s are beat off when thev have plenty 
of actual contact wiih the soil and the 
real work of the farm in connection with 
all the schooling you care to give. We 
are not giving too much education to our 
boys 60 much as we are neglecting to give 
them the irisht kind. Mathematics will 
not hurt, but will help. Languages will 
help if they do not take too much time. 
Chemistry is the foundation of all science 
the boy cannot do without that. Geology 
helps. Botany helps. All these and 
other things but lay broad the foundation 
for a profitable agricultural education and 
make a man able to understand and appre- 
ciate this world of which he is a part- 
The life is more than the meat. 

The tendency of modern agriculture, 
with its machinery and horse power, en- 
abling men to reap wide fields, is essen- 
tially destructive. There is great need of 
acientitic and practical teachings of soils 
and m:tiiitaining and rcHtoring fertility to 
them. Y'lii cannot leurn that of the 
farmer prai'tii-ing his art l a the prairies 
to-day He is a soil-robber, and wisely 
enoligh ; for all poineers must be foil 
robbers. The young generation of farmers 
must cease to be soil-robbers. The farmer 
is a business man. He must know with 
definiteness and skill many things. He 



must know how wisely to choose cattle 
for feeding, to buy feedstuffs wisely for 
them, to feed them economically. Thanks 
to modern methods practical men, skilled 
in these arts, are now to be found in our 
agricultural colleges. 

Agricultural education pays well in the 
joy that it brings the young farmer. Tbe 
common processes of the art take on a 
new meaning. As he plows, instead of 
turning up a dead soil he is turning up 
the history of the world since the very 
rocks cooled. He is thinking of the 
chemistry of that soil and of. the problems 
concerning it and its productiveness; 
problems that neither be nor his sons 
will find all settled. It is nowhere a dead 
world to him but a source of thought and 
pleasure everywhere. He will do things 
better, he will make more money for his 
training, but what is as important he 
will take a new interest and pleasure in 
doing things. 

If tlie boy has no land even then the 
agricultural education is most useful to 
him. Thousands of wealthy men are 
wise enough to be acquiring landed 
estates. Most of them desire to live upon 
them at least a part of the time. They 
are searching for men who know how to 
manage these estates. They are willing 
to pay generously for trained young men 
who can grow crops and care for cows and 
feed cattle and do these things well. 
They want the young men who know how. 
There are not nearly enough trained young 
men to do this work. Very often we re- 
ceive letters from rich men who are seek- 
ing for these young men who Wnow how 
to do things. To the young man, there- 
fore, who has time and strength we would 
say take the regular course in agriculture. 
To the man who can not spare the time 
we would say take the short course and 
keep up your reading and study at home. 
A half-loaf may not satisfy your hunger, 
but it may cause you to hunt up the other 
half o: the loaf and devour it at your 
leisure. 

Why Some Breeders Fail. 

Many breeders go into improved live 
stock and fail simply because they "hide 
their light under a bushel." They buy 
the best, they care for it well, they use 
judgment in breeding and the produce 
good stock, but they lose sight of the 
most important part of the business, 
profitable prices, says Xational Stock- 
man. A farm loaded with the best live 
stock in the world would be an expensive 
luxury to the owner if he were not able 
to get better prices than the man who 
produced common stock. For the butcher 
grade stock is sometimes as good as if 
not better than pure-bred stock and the 
producer of pedigreed animals should al- 
ways cater to the breeder instecd of the 
consumer. 

There is but one way to create a trade 
among the class of buyers that Kre willing 
to pay high enough prices to justify the 
careful breeder. It can only be done by 
advertising. This may be done by ex- 
hibiting at fairs or shows, by a liberal use 
of catalogues and circulars, or by placing 
an advertisement in a good, reliable live 
stock and farm paper. The experience of 
the most successful breeders proves be- 
yond a doubt that the latter is the most 
successful method Papers that are al- 
ways advocating improved live stock have 
done more to distribute good breeds 
throughout the country than all other 
mediums combined. They enthuse the 
man who has been contented with scrubs 
to try something better. They encourage 
the man who has taken a step higher. 
They disseminate knowledge along the 
line of improvement among ordinary 
farmers until they are convinced that it 
pays to get out of the old ruts, thus crent- 
ing a demand. 

Lack of enthusiasm and interest in good 
stock is often due to the breeders them- 
selves. Liberal prices are paid for good 
blood and good apimals. Neighbors watch 
the outcome. They figure the investment 
and the result. If the prices received are 



not proportionately higher than common 
stock as the prices paid they figure that 
another good man has gone wrong. And 
their conclusions are about right The 
man who pays good prices for good live 
stock for breeding purposes should get 
much better prices for what he produces 
than the man who is satisfied with scrubs. 
This can be done by creating a market in 
the way of letting others know what you 
have by thoroughly and persistently ad- 
vertising. 

The Yearling. 



Feeders of baby beef, who keep their 
animals up to their work, are known to 
make a gain of over two pounds daily for 
twelve months. This gain depends upon 
the age of the animal and the manner in 
which it is fed. A matter that should not 
be overlooked by the farmer is the ap- 
propriate food for each animal ; he should 
aim to increase the weight by making the 
animal as fat as possible, as fat is more 
easily produced on an animal than either 
lean meat or bone, says IVie EpiloniiKt. 
It has been shown that to increase the ex- 
cess of either fat or lean on an animal de- 
pends upon the age. The natural inclina- 
tion of a yearling animal is growth, and 
the system demands materials containing 
but a small portion of fat producing 
qualities ; but as growth adds to weight, 
the more rapid the growth the greater 
the increase in weight, which, of course, 
accounts for the quick gains made by 
young animals as compared with those 
approaching maturity, and which fact 
gives rise to the claim that baby beef is 
the cheaper form of the two. 

To know the breeds and how to use 
them ; to be aware of the fact that some 
breeds assimilate more food and giveoflf 
less waste than others, and to learn how 
to convert food into a salable product 
quickly and economically is what each 
one must study out for himself. Have a 
piir of scales, weigh fre(iuently and note 
the ratio of increase in weight By so 
doing one can cover the causes of failure 
and correct mistakes. The time is com- 
ing when the farmer will not be satisfied 
with less than a pound a day from birth 
for his two year old steers, nor less than 
a pound a day for his farrows and wethers 
up to one year old. In approaching 
maturity, gains are not so great, but pre 
vious to that animals for the block should j 
be pushed. Finally, breeds that gain 
weight in the high-priced portions of the 
carcass must be given preference, and 
feeders must know that they are breeding 
for definite results. Baby beef must have 
the fat in the right place. 



that it costs less to run the machine acd 
the further reason that the capacity for 
digestion and assimilation is greater in 
the young animal than in the one more 
mature. 

Bear in mind now if you are feeding 
your pigs with a scoop shovel, feeding 
them on grain that has a value, that the 
younger you can fit them for a profitable 
market without impairing their health by 
over-forcing the more money you are going 
to make out of them. This applies to 
hogs to be fitted for the market. It does 
not apply to animals intended for breed- 
ing purposes These should never be 
pushed or forced but grown with the idea 
not of making the greatest number of 
pounds per day at the least cost, but of 
developing an animal with the most per- 
fect health and most abounding vitality. 

Nor does this rule apply to animals, as 
we have before pointed out, that are kept 
for scavenger purposes in other words, 
not fed with a scoop shovel out of the oats 
bin or corn crib, but hogs that are used 
for consuming the offal of the dairy and 
of the feed yard or for turning c'over, 
rape or alfalfa pastures into cash. We 
can afford to waste feed on them because 
the food in itself is largely waste, and it 
is better to get something out of it than 
nothing, and the hog can be used very 
generally for that kind of work. When 
this hog is to be fattened, then he should 
be pushed as rapidly as possible, for the 
fewer days it requires to add 50 or 100 
pounds to his weight the less food is 
wasted in running the machine. 

We think now we have made this per- 
fectly clear to any man who will take the 
pains to read carefully and think over 
what we have said in this and tliree or 
four preceding articles. 



The Cost of Pork at Different Ages. 



Still harping on the same thing, ham- 
mering away on the same nail, we give 
our readers some of the conclusions drawn 
by the Wisconsin Station as a result of a 
series of careful experiments as to the 
average net gains of pigs at different ages 
and the average cost per 100 pounds of 
grain, says Wallace's Farmer. The gain 
for the first four weeKs on the litters of 
twelve broodsows of different breeds was 
8.8 pounds and the cost $1 17 per 100 
pounds ; the second four weeks the gain 
Increased to 12.6 pounds and the cost to 
$L71 ; the third four weeks the gain in- 
creased to 21.4 pounds and the cost to 
$2.06; the next four weeks for some reason 
the gain dropped a little to 20 pounds, 
but the cost of the gain was $2.74 per 100 
pounds ; the fifth four weeks the gain was 
23 3 pounds and the cost $3.34; the sixth 
four weeks the gain was 29.1 pounds and 
the cost $3 19; the seventh four weeks the 
gain was 23.3 pounds aud the cost $3.95; 
and the eighth four weeks the gain was 
32.4 pounds and the cost $4.29. 

This illustrates in a very striking way 
the correctness of our teachings on this 
subject for some weeks past. The older 
and larger the hogs the greater the cost 
per pound of gain. The younger and 
smaller the hog, the greater the increase 
OD a given amount of feed for the reason

The Value of Cows According to 
Capacity. 



Prof. A. M. Wheaton fiirniBhea sonie 
very interesting; figurea based upon pres- 
ent prices of dairy products, which mav 
be of interest to many in determining just 
where they stand in cow wealth. It will 
be noticeable that while the cow thai 
makes 900 pounds of butter is valued at a 
little over ^2 for every pound the o:ie 
that makes 325 is put down at lesslhan 
ten cents a pound for what she product f, 
showing that the extra pounds are what 
count.

o 

The experts have figured out that 
twenty i>er cent of the total product of 
butter is lost by the old gravity process. 
The loss on one good cow during a year 
would be 22).j pounds of butter and on ten 
cows 125 pounds which at twenty cents a 
pound would be a year. It will be 
seen by this that the loss to the farmers 
who cream their own milk by a gravity 
process is enormous in the aggregate. 
How can any business man succeed and 
suffer such a percentage of loss? What 
would be thought of a man who would go 
on from year to year with a hole in his 
pocket through which twenty cents would 
drop out and be lost every time he put a 
dollar into his pocket? Some men try to 
console themselves by saying that it is 
not aINost — the calves and pigs get the 
butter. But this is poor consolation, fcr 
butter is dear feed, even when the price 
is the lowest. One cent's worth of oil- 
meal will do the calves and pigs as much 
good as a pound of huttPr fat.

Pacing Mare by McKinney 2:11 1-4 

ELECTRO McKINNEY 

Brown Colt, Three-Year-Old Trotter by McKinney 2:11 1-4 

RITA H. li a dark brown mare who stands nearly 16 bands high, and will weigh in racing trim 
about lU&ii lbs This mare has had this year a very remarkable record. She started In the North- 
western Circuit In the States of Oregon and Washington, and out of eight s'arts won her Brst seven 
raoes and only lost four heats during the entire circuit, and has a pacing record of 2:11 M. The mare 
Is Qve years old and is excellent on the road She does not pull or lug. and a lady can drive her 
anywhere. Last spring she trotted a workout mile in 2:18V4and repeated In 2: 16V4, after only seven 
weeks' work Herowuer has driven her in2:l2'.4 in the Los Angeles Driving Club races, she having 
won all of them In which she started. This mare can step two heats below 2:10. 

ELECTRO McKINNEY is a brown stallion foaled in 1900, and stands 15 hands 1 inch In height. 
He trotted a full mile as a two-year-old in 2:31^, last quarter in 35 seconds, and when a three-year- 
old a full mile in 2:21 '4, last quarter in 32 seconds He Is perfectly galted and a grand individual in 
every respect. Weighs about B50 lbs. ELECTRO MoKINVEY Is bred In the purple, and Is one of 
the best sons of McKinney alive to-day. McKinney Is undoubtedly the greatest sire for his age, 
living or dead. ELECTRO McKINNEY was not raced this year, being only a three-year-old and 
not entered in any stakes it was decided to hold him over. 

These horses are all right and there la not a thing the matter with them, but my business 
demands are such that I cannot afTord to devote any time to racing them. For prices and further 
particulars address

A Sidney Stallion With Earning Capacity 



In pursuance of my intention to retire from the business of breeding' horsee, 
and having- disposed of all my broodmares at auction, I now ofler at privatesale 
the stallion 

William Harold 2:i3i-4. 

His sire is the great Sidney 'J'A'di, grandsire of the champion trotter of the 
world, Lou Dillon 1:5HA, and his dam the great race and broodmare Cricket 2:10 
(dam of four in the list) by Steinway, the greatest son of Strathmore. 

WILLIAM HAROLD is a producer The only two of his get to start are 
that wonderfully fast trotter Janice 2:08] and the pacor Dan Burns 2:1,'). 
WILLIAM HAROLD'S services in the stud were very limited up to three years 
ago, as he was raced. His weanlings, yearlings and two-year-olds are very prom- 
ising and have size, good loolis and great natural speed, besides being uniform in 
color, nearly all bays. He is a sure foal getter, is in the very best condition, sound 
and healthy, and with ordinary good business management can earn in the stud 
In 1004 the price asked for him.

REPEATING SHOT GUNS 



A CHANCE FOR A DOUBLE 



A QUESTION often asked about Repeating Shotguns is, "How quick can a second shot befired with 
them?" Shooters that have used Repeaters answer with one accord: "Doubles" are just as easy to 
make with a WINCHESTER REPEATING SHOTGUN as they are with a double barreled 
gun. The third shot that a Winohester liepeater gives often bags a badly crippled bird which otherwise 
would get away. Winchester Repeating Shotguns are made in

RITA H. 2:11 1-4 

Pacing Mare by McKinney 2:11 1-4 

ELECTRO MCKINNEY 

Brown Colt, Four-Year-Old Trotter by McKinney 2:11 1-4 

RITA H. is a dark brown mare who stands nearly 16 hands high, and will weigh in racing trim 
about 1050 lbs This mare has had this year a very remarkable record. She started In the North- 
western Circuit in the States of Oregon and Washington, and out of eight starts won her first seven 
races and only lost four heats during the entire circuit, and has a pacing record of ±11^. The mare 
is five years old and is excellent on the road. She does not pull or lug. and a lady can drive her 
anywhere. Last spring she trotted a workout mile in 2:18^ and repeated in 2:16^4, after only seven 
weeks' work. Her owner has driven herin2;12>4 in the Los Angeles Driving Club races, she having 
won all of them in which she started. This mare can step two beats below 2:10 

ELECTRO McKINNEY Is a brown stallion foaled in 1900, and stands 15 hands 1 inch in height, 
lie trotted a full mile as a two-year-old in '2:31(4, 'ast quarter in 35 seconds, and when a three-year- 
old a full mile in 2:21(4, last quarter in 32 seconds He is perfectly gaited and a grand individual in 
every respect. Weighs about 950 lbs. ELECTRO McKINNEY is bred in the purple, and Is one of 
the best sons of McKinney alive to day McKinney is undoubtedly the greatest sire for his age. 
living or dead. ELECTRO McKINNEY was not raced last year, being only a three-year-old and 
not entered In any stakes It was decided to hold him over. 

These horses are all r<gbt and there is not a thing the matter with them, but my business 
demands are suoU that I cannot afford to devote any time to racing them. For prices and further

In pursuance of my intention to retire from the business of breeding horses, 
and having disposed of all my broodmares at auction, I now offer at private sale 
the stallion 

William Harold 2:i3i-4. 

His sire is the great Sidney 2;19J, grandsire of the champion trotter of the 
world, Lou Dillon 1:58J, and his dam the great race and broodmare Cricket 2:10 
(dam of four in the list) by Steinway, the greatest son of Strathmore. 

WILLIAM HAROLD is a producer The only two of his get to start are 
that wonderfully fast trotter Janice 2:08} and the pacer Dan Burns 2:15 
WILLIAM HAROLD'S services in the stud were very limited up to three years 
ago, as he was raced. His weanlings, yearlings and two-year-olds are very prom- 
ising and have size, good looks and great natural speed, besides being uniform in 
color, nearly all bays. He is a sure foal getter, is in the very best condition, tound 
and healthy, and with ordinary good business management can earn in the stud 
in 1904 the price asked for him.

San Francisco, Saturday, January 9, 1004 



THE LAST OPPORTUNITY to secure colts and 
fillies coDsigDed to a sale by Palo Alto Stock 
Farm will be given buyers at Fred H. Chase \- Co 's 
falesyard, 17.32 Market street, this city, next Thurs- 
day evening, January 14th. Those who appreciate 
what this means will be there and it will be a great 
sale Every horsemen in America knows that the 
late Senator Stanford was a progressive breeder. H<' 
was not satisfied with anything but progrres in all 
his undertakings. The idea of standing still in any 
line of business was abhorreat to him, and he always 
aimed to improve and build up toward perfection. 
He founded at Palo Alto a great stock farm for the 
breeding of trotting horses. He met with success, 
but to the day of his death be had no idea of 
stopping or being content with that succes.^. 
but aimed for an improvement each succeeding 
year. Had he lived Palo Alto Stock Farm would 
have been continued and been one of the great object 
lessons in the world in light harness horse breed- 
ing. His ideas were carried out after his death 
as near as possible by Superintendent Frank Covey, 
but the managers of the estate willed it that the farm 
must be discontinued and all the horses sold. During 
the past two years the auction rings in California and 
at Cleveland and New York have seen the stallions 
and broodmares of the farm sold to the high bidder, 
until there is now left only the •eventeen fouls of 
19D3, and a few mares and older colts, twenty-four 
head in all, to be sold at auction as above stated on 
Thursday evening next. These yearlings are un- 
doubtedly the best bred lot ever sent to a sahti irg 
from the great farm. They are by McKinney the 
leading sire of 2:10 trotters in the world; Nulwccd 
Wilkes, sire of the fastest trotter of the entire Wilkrs 
tribe of horses; Monbells, Beautiful Bells' last son 
and cjrtainly destined to be one of her great- 
est; Mendocino, that bears the strongest resem- 
blance to the great Electioneer of any of liis 
get, and sire of two great 2:10 trotter; Iran 
Alto, the greatest bred and the fastest son of the 
great race horse Palo Alto; and Nazote, own brother 
to that wonderful race horse Azote 2:04^. By such 
sires as these and out of some of the greatest mares 
the farm ever owned, why should not these yearlings 
be considered the best ever bred on the farm. If you 
have not yet received a catalogue containing the full 
breeding of all these horses, send to Fred H. Chase A- 
Co. for one, and make up jour mind to attend the 
sale. The opportunity will never oe offered again, 
and it is one that horsemen who want the best cannot 
afford to lose. 



PLEASANTON will open the California circuit this 
year with a four days' program of harness racing 
for which good big purses will be offered. This was 
decided at a meeting of horsemen in that thriving 
town this week, and Messrs. A. S. Olney and Geo. A. 
Kelly were present at the meeting of the P. C. T. H. 
B. A. Directors, held at the office of the Brekder 
AND Sportsman on Thursday of this week, where 
they made this announcement. The Pleasanton 
people desire to open the circuit. There are 200 
horses in training there now and with the exception 
of those in the string of Monroe Salisbury and one or 
two others, all will be raced in California provided a 
circuit is announced. The Directors of the Breedera 
association have about agreed upon a program of 
stakes and purses, and will be ready to announce the 
same in next week's issue of the Breeder and 
Sportsman. Their meeting will probably be held at 
Santa Rosa, where one of the very best tracks in the 
Stateia situated and where the association has always 
held very successful meetings. Petaluma and Vallejo 
will give meetings also, and the first four meetings 
will probably be in the following order: Pleasanton, 
Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Vallejo. If Woodland gives 
a meeting', which it probably will, it could follow 



Vallejo and take its usual week just prior to the State 
Fair. This plan would give Pleasanton the last week 
in July for its opening of the ciicuit, which would he 
very agreeable to the horsemen. Look out for the 
announcements next week. They will interest every- 
body. 



nrHK BliKKDKRS FUTURITY for foals of 1!K)1, to 
* be contested for by three-year-olds this year, 
promises to furnish two highly interesting contt pIf. 
Payment was made January2d on more than fifty 
three-year-olds entered in thia $6000 stake, which is 
evidence that that number of colts are being put in 
training. As owners do not designate whether their 
colts are trotters or pacers until making starting p«y- 
mi>nt8 ten days before the first day of the meetine, it 
will not be possible to tell until that time in what 
proportion the trotters and pacers will be divided, 
but the probability is that the trotting division » ill 
li;tre the Isrgest number ef starters. At any rat" , it 
li> 'ks now as if there will be two great contests, and 
We hope to see the three-year-old race record of ilie 
state beaten in both events. 



IF WAR ENSUES between Russia and Japan, tie 
' price of hay in this market will go aoaring. As 
will be seen by the quotations of this week, good luiy 
is a luxury here now. The prices quoted are as fo - 
lows: W^heat, -SUi/i 17 50; wheat and oat, $14(" lO .i(i; 
oat, $14("16; wild oat, $13. .7 14 .W; barley, $12^" 14; 
alfalfa, $12(^' 1.3 50 per ton. A telegram from Wash- 
ington received this week states that the United 
Slates Government has ordered over six thousand 
t )ns of hay to be bought in this port and shipped to 
.Manila. It will cost the government $19.50 per ton. 
It is also said that there are several big orders for 
hay to be shipped to Japan for the Japanese Govern- 
ment in case hostilities are declared. Should the 
rains hold off much longer in California hay will jump 
much higher and there is no telling at what price it 
will stop. 



WHAT'S THE ODDS? is the title of a book just 
issued by the well known bookmaker J('e 
niman, known as one of the raconteurs of the 
running turf. The book is fullof good yarnscollecled 
by Mr. Ullman during his many years experiecce, 
and are funny, true aod clean. The book is hand- 
somely bound and profusely illustrated. 



GEORGE J. FULLER, aged 6f), one of the greatest 
drivers of trotting horses in the country, who 
at one time had charge of the stables of the Czar of 
Russia, is dead. His death occurred at Nashville, 
Tennessee, on the 7tb inst. 



Still Room for Many More. 

The coming of the two minute trotter may have 
scared a few of the more timid horsemen out of busi- 
ness as it was predicted would be the case, but to 
date none has been reported as missing. Nor has any 
trainer lost heart, so far as can be learned. As a 
matter of fact, the two minute trotter did not do any 
more damage than was done by the first two minute 
pacer, so far as actual racing is concerned. There is 
still plenty of room for the trotter that is not quite 
good enough to get to the top of the record ladder. 
And the more you look into it the more you will be 
convinced that the standing space is by no means 
crowded. For instance, a floating item in the turf 
papers calla attention to the fact that but four trot- 
ting stallions have race records better than 2:07, and 
the four, with their race records, are Cresceua 2:0.3!, 
Directum 2.051, Blngen 2:06j, Rhythmic 2:06^. 
Which means that the 2:07 trotter is still some pump- 
kins at the races and ought to continue to win his 
share of the money for aome time. 

The faster classes have never yet been overcrowded. 
Right now men who campaign at the more important 
meetings are looking for trotters that they think can 
make a good showing in the 2:07 class in 1904 And 
if a glance is taken over the list of eligibles it will be 
enough to show that the fields can not be large. Yet 
the trotting record is 1:5H}. When it gets to 1:.55 
there will be no decrease in the demand for trotters 
that can race in 2:05 to 2:08, and the 2:05 class will be 
considered a very fast onr, for trotters, when the 
great majority of the present generation of horfeiren 
has answered the final summons. — Kcnturh;/ ijtdck

New Year's Racing at Phoenix, Arizona. 

Two days' racing were held at the Pbcvbht, Ari- 
zona, truck on Thursday and Friday, the last and first 
days of the old and new year. 

On Thursday the first event was a stake for tbrct • 
minute trotters. All three beats were won by Del- 
nettc, owned by A. H. Davidson and driven by J . K. 
Wheat. The time was 2:55J, 2:41)] and 2:28i. The 
la^t heat was the only one in which Delnette showed 
her real speed. Lady Allen, owned and driven by 
W. A. Priestly, was second in the first and third 
heats and third in the second heat. Hartwood. owned 
by Wolf Sachs and driven by Tayior, was third in the 
first and third heats and second in the second heat. 

The two-year-old match race, best two bents in 
three, half mile dash, between Tommy Lawson, owned 
by William Barkley, and Governor Brodie, owned by 
William Lossing, was won by Tommy Lawson, who 
took two of the three heats. Governor Brodie took 
the first heat in 1:41, Liwson getting the second nnd 
third in 1:.34 and 1:31. 

lu tUo amateur road race to cart there were two 
heats, four starters. Kate, owned by Dr. Ramsey, 
took both heats in 2:,55 and 2:51; Prince, owm d by 
Mr. Harmon, was second in both heats and Urmelia, 
owned by Ed Worcester, was third in both heats. 
The race was for a trophy. 

In the half-mile dash running race Bella Donna, 
owned by Jack Gibson, won in 52 seconds, with Al, 
owned by G. A. Wilson, second. 

A much larger crowd attended the second day's 
racing, as it was a holiday. The event of the day was 
the 2:24 trot for a purse of $100, divided into four 
moneys, $50, $25, $15 and $10. The race was best 
three in five but only three heats were trotted as Hex 
Mambrino took all three in 2:33, 2:.il and 2:301. J!ex 
is owned by Dan Steele and was driven by Johnson. 
A remarkable thing about the race is that all four 
horses occupied the same positions at the finish of 
each of the three heats, those positions being as fol- 
lows: Delnette, owned by A. H. Davidson and driven ' 
by Wheat, second; Miss Boydello, owned by W. C. 
Greene and driven by Klotzbach, third; Oakwood, 
owned by J. A. Plattner and driven by Taylor, fourth. 
There was some little trouble in scoring, one of the 
horses having to change sulkys a time or two by rea- 
son of breakage. Each heat was a good one and 
closely contested, though the second and third heats 
were the best. In the second Delnette was at the neck 
of Rex Mambrino all through the stretch. It is no- 
ticeable that none of the horses were up to their 
records as all have made b-tter than 2:.30 and the win- 
ner. Rex Mambrino, has a record of 2:24. Delnette 
only the day before entered the 2:30 class, having 
made a record of 2:28J. 

In connection with this race and these horses it is 
proper to remark that both Oakwood and Delnette 
enjoy a national distinction in that the former was 
the first horse in the United States to make a record 
in 1903 and the latter was the last horse in the United 
States to make a re»;ord in the same year. Oakwood 
broke into the 2:30 class on January Ist, a year ago, 
with a record of 2:28:j, and Delnette entered the same 
class on Thursday, the last day of the year, with a 
record of 2:28J. 

The second event was the amateur road race be- 
tween Tom, driven by his owner, Walter Bennett, 
and Sally Pointer, driven by her owner, J.C. Adams. 
The race was for a trophy, a handsome plush lap- 
robe being the prize. 

The third race of the day was a quarter mile run 
between Flirt, owned by Mr. McCallister and ridden 
by Graham, and Chic-Chic, owned by Jack Gibson 
and ridden by Commodore E'assey. Brickmaktl- was 
entered by James Graham but was withdrawn. 
Chic-Chic won the csFh in 2',V,. 

A three-quarter mile run followed between Little 
Joe, owned by John P.Gibson and ridden by Passfy, 
and Romar, owned by A. N. Porter and ridden by 
Wilson. Little Joe took the money. 



Has a New Stock Farm. 



Mr. A. G. F. Stico, who campaigned a string of 
horses in Clalifornia a few years ago, is now a resident 
of Monmouth, Illinois, where bo has recently pur- 
chased a farm and stocked it with horses. It will be 
callcvi the Stice Stock Farm, and his many California 
friends will wish him every luccesa in his undertak- 
ing. His premier sire will be Manager 2:0*iJ by Nut- 
wood. This great horse Is from the justly famous 
mare Carrie 2:2!lj [dam of Manager 2:0(ii|. Wood boy 
2:191 and Darwin 2:13) by George Wilkes 2:22, truly 
the very cream of breeding. Manager is already the 
sire of nine performers with standard records, and 
without doubt will prove a great race borte aire. 



The Mendocinos are race horses, as for Instance 
Monte Carlo 2:07J. A yearling by Mondooino out of 
Carmine by Electricity, second dam 11 double pro- 
ducjr by Dictator, is to be sold at Fr.id H. Chase Si 
Co's silosyard next Thur.sday evening. This yearling 
is a dark bay colt and a good one. He is bred well 
enough to head a stock farm.

JOTTINGS. 



MILLARD SANDERS is indignant and righteouslj' 
BO, over the protest that the tons of Robert 
Biianer have made against the n cord of 2:05 which 
Lou DillioD made at Cleveland labt jear hitched to a 
hi^h wheel sulky. When he heard of the protest he 
said: 

"I could not, to save my life, say whelbt r the sulky 
Lou Dillon pulled in 2:0r) over the Cleveland track to 
beat Maud S.'s record had ball-bearing hubs or tot. 
I do know no wind shield was used, and I am willing- 
to bjt $;")0U() that Lou Dillon can pull that same sull<.\ , 
which, by the way, weighed fifty five ijounris— twi Kn 
more than Maud S.'s sulky— in less than 2:0'). Mem- 
bers of the Bonner estate have for years offered *50(i(> 
for any driver that would break Maud S.'s record. I 
broke it, and broke it fairly, with Lou Dillon, but I 
have never seen the color of their money. Now if 
they mean business about that $^0U0 offer. ( can take 
that same sulky Maud S. used— if it is still in gnod 
coiiditLin- ^nd drive Lou Dillon in less than 2:(t5(iver 
the Cleveland track. I knew Lou would make them 
hiiller. They can't accept the result like true spiirts- 
m«ri and give Lou Dillon credit forher record." 

There will be very few horsemen who will blame 
Millard from getting a little "hot in the collar" over 
this protest and speaking as he has. The point that 
the suluy he used with Lou Dillon had ball bearings 
is simply a technical one. If Lou Dillon had drawn a 
friction axle sulky, (and she may have done so) Eome 
other technicality would doubtless have been raiftd. 
When Lou Dillon trotted her mile in 1:58* Millard 
Sanders did aot carry a whip, and it would be just as 
consistent for him to now claim that any faster record 
made by a trotter in the future will be invalid if the 
driver carries the customary whalebone, as it is for 
Messrs. Bonner to insist that the record of Maud S. 
to high wheels is not yet beaten. Every horEcman in 
America knows that Maud S., great mare as she was, 
is not in the same class With Lou Dillon, who simply 
outclasses every trotter thus far produced. 



Wm. Hendrickson, the veteran horseman, who 
owned and campaigned Geo. M. Patchen Jr., has re- 
cently returned from the East, where ho went latt 
May with Clay 3. 2:\Si and two or three others, one a 
full brother to Clay S. Mr. Hend rickson col 1 Clay S. 
while there and left the other horses at Memphis, 
which he bays is an ideal place to winter irotteis'. 
While absent from California he saw Lou Dillon he ld 
and afterwards saw her beat all the records. Since 
reaching home he has talked with Frank Malone ard 
several others and thinks there is a strong probability 
that the grandam of Lou Dillon was old Jenny Butter- 
fitjld by Geo. M. Patchen Jr. .'U. He says that Mr. 
Kimball once owned Jenny Butterfield, that she was 
purchased for William Kalston, and as she was a very 
b il puller Ralston did not want her and gave her to 
Kimball, who afterwards sold her. Her dam was by 
John Nelson. Mr. Hendrickson states that he le- 
members the mare and that she was a sorrel with one 
or possibly two white ankles behind. 



With due difference to the opinions of all those who 
think they know the breeding of Lou Dillon's gran- 
dam, I cannot help but believe that it will never be 
traced. The very fact that Mr. McFadyen, who owned 
her and bred several standard performers from her 
in her young days, made an extended investigation 
many years ago and was unable to ascertain anything 
deSnite in regard to the matter, leads ae to believe 
that i*' is impossible to get at the facts now when all 
parties who actually knew anything of the rcare are 
dead. Lou Milton's dam will, in my humble opinion, 
always be among those famous mares whose pedigrei s 
are often guessed at but absolutely unknown. 



It is amusing to read 'in the da'ly ] nai that a big 
row has been kicked up in iLo Board of Supervisors 
of San Francisco over the price paid recently for 
horses for the Fire Department. It seems that a 
dealer wai paid $275 each for the horses, and there- 
upon an investigation was begun on the grounds that 
the price was excessive. Any hortiman in California 
who knows anything of horse values, and the qualifi- 
cations which ahorse must have, to be of practical 
every uay use in the fire department of this city, will 
know that at present market values, $275 is not a high 
price for one that is able to pass the examination. 
M the meeting of thi- Board where the subject was 
up for discussion. Fire Commissioner Watt produced 
a letter from a man in l • taluma who offered to sell 
good horsfcs at from $200 to *2.'')0. The fact that the 
Commissioner offered this leU. r in the best of faith 
and evidently believed that the I'etaluma man could 
deliver the goods, does not remove the ludicrous 
feature from the situation. There is seldom a horte, 
a cow or a dog sold at a good price, but the buyer (if 
the sale and price are reported in the papers) receives 



numerous letters from owners who cfftr superibr ani- 
mals for loss money, and jet the market for good ones 
Ht good prices is never fully supplied. At the present 
lime $275 is a very fair price for a horse that is young, 
.--rund and of the proper weight and style to make 
him an engine or book-and-laddi r horse. The fire 
department horse muot have size anc wt igbt enough 
to pull heavyweight over cobble stoLt s and action 
enough to move those heavy weights at a fair rate of 
speed. He is not bred on every (aim and is- more of a 
"chancy" horse than any thing else. The prices which 
the San Francisco authorities have been paying for 
fire department horses are none too high for animals 
that come up to the requirements. 



Bayswater Wilkes Goes to Woodland. 

Much of the patronage that has been extended dur- 
ing the past three years to S. H. Hoy s good stallion 
Biyswater Wilkes 2:25], has come from residents tf 
■^'olo county who reside near Woodland, and so 
pleased are they with the weanlings, yearlings and 
two-year-olds they have by this horse, that Mr. Hoy 
has received many requests to stand the son of Sable 
Wilkes at that place during the season of 1004, which 
ho has concluded to do. Bayswater Wilkts has bad 
very little opportunity in the stud, but his colts are 
showing such speed that it will be only a matter of a 
little time before the attention of breeders will beat, 
tracted to him from all sections. 

His sire Sable Wilkes that held the three-year-old 
record of 2:18 is making a name for himself in the 
East and through his sons and daughters establishing 
a family that is destined to be one of the greatest of 
the branches of the Wilkes tribe. Oro Wilkes 2:11 
put eight new ones in the list this year, the good 
three-year-old mare Mary Gage 2;16J being one of the 
number. 

The dam of Bayswater Wilkes is one of the few 
thoroughbred mares that has product d two standard 
trotting performers and earned a place in the list of 
Great Brood Mares. She is the dam of Senator L. 
2:23} that holds the world's four-mile record of 10:12. 
The second dam Bessie Sedgwick by the great four- 
mile horse Jo Daniels, was also a producer of trotters 
and the dam of that good trotting mare Bessie Thorn 
2:22.^. Those who believe in the "thoroughbred clos-e 
up" theory (and their names are legion; will find in 
Bayswater Wilkes a stallion that the most radical 
opponents to that theory can not find fault with, as* 
his thoroughbred dam and grandam were both pro- 
ducers of standard trotters. The produce of Bays- 
water Wilkes have size, excellent dispositions, the 
very best feet and legs and are the sort that never 
find the distance between points too long. Whether 
in a race of mile heats, or driven for 75 miles a day on 
the road, the get of Bayswater Wilkes are alwajs 
"up in the collar" and never look for openings in the 
fence. They have the gameness and the other at- 
tributes that make race horses. 



Daedalion 2:11 by Diablo. 



Sam Gamble saw Dacdalion 2:11 for the first time 
while on a visit to the Mokelumne Stock Farm a ft w 
weeks ago and writes as follows of him: 

"Daedalion 2:11, pacing, is by Diablo 2:09}, that 
twice held the world's record for his sex and age, 
and is the sire of the pacers Sir Albert S. 2:03if, 
Clipper 2:06, Diodine 2:10, Diawood 2:11, El Diablo 
2:11}, Tags 2:11 J and many others better than 2:15. 
Daedalion's first dam is Grace (in the great brood- 
mare list, thrte belter than 2:20), secotd dam in the 
great broodmare list. Daedalion 2:11 is not only a 
very fast horse, but he is bred for a sire, through his 
sire and dams being producers. He represents eight 
producing dams in his veins. Take his general make- 
up, conformation, head, muscle development and 
gait, and there is nothing but death or lack of op- 
portunity can prevent him from being one of our 
foremost sires of great all-round horses. If he should 
betaken now and placed in a competent trainer's 
bands he has a chance to etjual or boat all records 
that are represented in his veins through his great 
producing ancestors. He is assound, as far as my eye 
can judge, a- the day he was foaled. It was my first 
opportunity to look him over closely, and I was 
amazed to find such a grand lookirg and prospective 
speed-producing sire hidden away from the public. 
Judging by his first few foals he is surely a coming 
sire of great speed, and as to his taking a record of 
2:05 or better I believe it is in his hide." 

Daedalion is to be sold at Fred H. Chase iV Co. 's 
salesyard on Thursday evening next. 



Polo and Pony Racing Association. 

Announcement is made from the headquarters of 
tho Hurlingame Country Cub of the organization of 
th>- (Jalifornia Polo and Pony Racing Associalii f, 
with the following well known men as officers: Charli s 
W. Clark, president; Francis J. Cardan, first vici - 
president, Rudolph SprecKels, second vice-pretidei i : 
Th.)raas A. DriscoU, secretary ;R. M. Toblr, treasurt 1 ; 
directors— the foregoing and R. L. Bettner, E. W. 
Boe^eke, T. H. Dudley, C. S. Maud, Joseph S. Tobin 
and J . L. Colby. 

The object of the association is to encourage and 
promote the game of polo and pony racing in Cali- 
fornia. It is believed by the promoters that the move- 
men t will result in unusual interest in these sporlp, 
and that polo teams from England, Hawaiian islaide 
and possibly from the East will participate in seme of 
the big events scheduled for the season. 

The first of these is a five day polo and pony racing 
tournament, to be held at Del Mo'nte, beginning on 
February 12lh. Alternate day s will be given to the 
iwo sports, and about $1000 in purses and seveial 
valuable cups will be awarded. At the conclusion ( f 
these matches ponies and players will repair to Bur- 
lingame, where a like series of sports will be hi Id 
under siiWIlar conditions. These will begin in 
February 17th and be concluded on the 22d, Washing- 
ton's birthday. 

What promises to be the most elaborate and pre 
tentious event of the season, however, will be the 
polo tourjament for the championship of the Pacific 
Coast, to be played at Burlingame. It will begin on 
March ISlh and continue daily until finals are playid 
off. By that lime all available polo players will have 
arrived, and it promises to eclipse in magnitude any 
similar event ever held in California. 

Litigation Over a Stake. 

A decision rendered by the Board of Appeals of the 
American Trotting Associatit n al its itctnt mttliig 
in Chicago has resulted in litigation in the Federal 
Courts, the outconce of which will be watched with 
interest by horse owners every w here. Noah 1. Wood 
is the plaintiff and the defendant is the Terre Haute 
Trotting Association. Mr. Woods made an entry in 
a futurity stpke of $10,000, opened by the Indiana 
organization in 1900, for foais of that year to tioi in 
1903. Before the time came to trot the race the 
Terre Haute Trotting Association tendered to Mr. 
Wood the amount he had paid in as entrance money 
and notified him that the race had been declared off. 
He refused to accept this settliment, and shipped his 
trotter to Terre Haute, appearing on the track at the 
time originally set for the contest, and claiming first 
money in the stake. Failing to obtain it he appealed 
to the turf court, and when that tribunal sustained 
the association he brought an action in the United 
States District Court in Michigan. It is said the 
association offering the stake refutdtd to all nomina- 
tors, making the final payment on June 1, 1903, the 
full amount paid in by them, but retained the forfeits 
received from other nominators who failed to make 
the last payment. Horsemen generally take the view 
that the association has no right to retain this for- 
feit money, the entrance fees in a stake being regarded 
as a trust fund to which the stakeholder acquiris no 
title. The right to declare off a stake race is also 
denied, though it has been done 00 more than one 
occasion. 

A Good Horse at Auction. 



New Surrey, first class, with pole and shafts, canopy 
top, 1} inch rubber tire, turn under, elegantly 
trimmed. Original price $420, can be bought at 
Kenney Manufacturing Company, 531 Market street, 
San Francisco, for $225. New lot of McMurray carts 
just arrived — 1904 models. * 



On the front page of this issue of the Bkkedek 
AND Sportsman is a photo-engraving of Mr. I. L. 
Borden's good gelding N. L. B. by Diablo. N. L B. 
U a pacer with good gait and good manners, and in 
liny competent trainer's hands can get a very low 
mark. He was trained and raced as a two-year-old, 
defeating the best of his age that were out that year, 
among them Volita 2:15',, Rey del Diablo 2:14^, Daken 
D. 2:16.1 and others. He took a two-year-old record 
of 2:2U. During the years he has been raced N. L. 
B. tias been compelled to meet aged horses and com- 
pate in races where the heats were usually below 2:15. 
He has won many second and third moneys during 
that time and been separately timed several miles in 
better than 2:15. As a road horse N. L. B. is rated 
among the good ones, as he is perfectly mannered and 
can be driven by anyone. He has the best of disposi- 
tions, is a good prompt driver and can speed at a 2:10 
gait. He will make some one a high class road or 
matinee horse and should be able to win money racing. 
His breeding is excellent as his dam was by the well 
known pacing stallion Washington, that had a record 
of 2:20, and his second dam by the horse Skenandoah, 
formerly called Kentucky Hunter. N L. B. will go 
to the high bidder at the Chase sale In this city next 
Thursday evening and the buyer will get a high class 
horse.

return in time for the spring driving season, and his 
horses may not be seen on the speedway again until 
the close of the Grand Circuit. Lord Derby 2:05ii and 
Billy Buch 2:07} are now turned out at a stock farm 
in New Jersey. Mr. Smathers says Lord Derby is as 
sound as a bell, and still believes the ion of Mambrino 
Kini? to be as fast as any horse be owns, not excepting 
Major Delmar. 



It is reported that the managers of the Western

A Vermont horseman writes that Agitato 2:09 raced 
in his proper class — the free for all— at Sandy Hill, 
N. Y., and Cambridge, N. Y., last summer. It has 
been hinted that Agitato might have been started in 
slow classes some lime last summer, but our Vermont 
correspondent's information seems to indicate that 
those bints had no basis in fact. 



The San Francisco Driving Club will hold matinee 
racing on the speedway in Golden Gate Park on Sun- 
day January 24lh. There are already nineteen horses 
entered, and it is expected a half dozen more will bo 
named to start. They will bo classified according to 
the speed they can show at the present time and 
several lively contests will result. 



Charlie Spencerand F, J. Fallman of Walnut Grove 
have recently puruhased from K. F. Thisby the two- 
year-old bay colt Sir Robert, entered in the Pacific 
Breeders Futurity $iiOOO stake for foals of mares bred 
in 1901. This colt is by Nusbagak, sire of Ari8to2:17J, 
winner of both the Occident and Stanford Stakes of

Eighteen of as high class yearlirgs as were ever bnd 
on the farm will go to the highest bidder. They are 
mostly by McKinney and Nutwood Wilkes. 



Ed Appel, of Rochester, N. Y., has purchased three 
likely prospects for next season's campaign. One is 
by Sable Wilkes 2:18, out of the former trotting 
champion Alix 2:03iJ; another was sired by Hand- 
spring 2:18} out of Atlanta, the dam of Alix, and tbo 
other was sired by Sable Wilkes out of the great 
trotting mare Martha Wilkes 2:08 by Alcyone. 



Pulling trotters to avoid fast records became so 
common in Russian harness racing a year or two ago 
that the driving clubs at St. Petersburg and Moscow 
discarded the system of classifying hortes according 
to their records and substituted a new plan of classi- 
fying them according to their winnings. The scheme 
is said to work well and it will probably remain in 
force. 

One of the best prospects in California is the brown 
colt Johnny McKenzie by McKinney 2:11}, dam Babe 
by Ferdinand, that C. A. Durfee has consigned to the 
sale at Chase's salesyard on the 14th of this month. 
Johnny McKenzie is a brown gelding foaled 1901, and 
is eligible to all the leading stakes in California this 
year. He is a square trotler and a good prospect. 
He is to be sold to close a partnership. 



Mr. Geo. O. Zillgitt, who recently removed to 
loglewood, California, from North Dakota, is the 
owner of a mare whose mane is so long that it drags 
on the ground several feet when it is permitted to 
hang loose. The mare is used as a buggy animal 
and her mane kept braided and "d one up" carefully. 
She is the mother of a colt foaled last spring that has 
inherited the neavy hirsute adornmentof its dam and 
its mane and tail already nearly touch the ground. 



Mr. A. T. Baker of San Jose, recently purchased in 
the lOast and has had shipped to this State a two-year- 
old colt by Bolward 18321, son of St. Bel 53;((j. The 
dam of the colt is by Mediator, a son of Happy 
Medium. He is a royally bred fellow and said by 
those who have seen him to be a very fine individual. 
Mr. Baker owns the stallion Red Nuttle and has a 
five-year-old mare by him out of Maudsford by 
Abbotsford that is one of the best prospects in Santa 
Clara county. 

James W. Rea of San Jose, proprietor of the Ven- 
dome Stock Farm and owner of a prize winning herd 
of Holstein cattle, was recently appointed a delegate 
to the National Live Stock Association's annual con- 
vention to be held at Portland, Oregon, from the 1 Ith 
to the 15tn of this month, but owing to his time being 
80 occupied with business ho was compelled to decline 
the honor. Mr. Rea highly appreciated the compli- 
ment but expects to open his new railroad line be- 
tween San Jose and Los Gatos on January 15th, so 
his time will be fully occupied . 



Dan Leiginger has added throe new ones to his 
string. One is a brown pacing stallion that is a full 
brother to the double gaited horse that tbo lato Tom 
Keating won many good races with — Oltinger 2:09jj, 
trotting and 2:16 pacing. This stallion is owned by 
Mr. EichotT of Ripon, this State, and Dan says he 
has every indication of being a genuine race horse as 
he is naturally very fast, and a better headed one is 
seldom seen. The other two new ones are both Mc- 
Klnneys — one being a five years old trotting gelding, 
the other a yearling. 

At the breeding farm of C. A. Arvedson, three 
miles north of College City, Kd Donnelly, tho well 
known and successful trainer, has in his ntablo the 
stallion Sutter 2:18} by Noonday and two two year 
olds by hlra, Rettus and Lady Sutter, that are show- 
irgupwell. The boys that are training for the two 
year old divisions of the Breeders Futurity for this 
year must take tho College City contingent into their 
calculations as Kd says they will have to trot bettor 
than 2:20 if thoy boat him, if Rettus don't go wrong. 
Mr. Arvedson has several other colts by Sutter that 
jook like the real goods he says. 



Last weok Dan McCarty, of this city, purchastd 
from Father Cooper, of San Muieo, a five year ola 
chestnut pacing mare by K. O'Cirady's staUlon Han 
Boswoll, that is considered one of tl o beet prospects 
in California for the slow pacing i lass of 1904. Mr. 
O'Grady broke this mare and gavi« her a few months 
work lust year at tho track on the Hay w ards place at 
San Mateo, and drove her a mile in 2:l" t i.mv i.indlly. 
Mr. McCarty has sent the mare to Joyh AU'ori!-on ut 
Pleasanton who will put her in training for the races 
of 1904. 



That good son of Director, Delphi 2:12}, Mrt of 
Toppy 2:10, owned by Chas. Whitehead, wi;l make 
the season of 1904 at the Salinas track. Th'j Director 
family is the groat race winning family and as tba 
years go by its represenlalive-s grow more numerous 
among the big money winners. Mr Whitehead, who 
has leaped the Salinas track, tells us that tho 
Directors of the association there are putting up a 
new windmill and a 10,0(»() gallon tank on tho grounds 
This makes throe windmills and tanks that will pro- 
vide water for the track and Mr. Whitehead sees no 
reason why it should not be one of the very best 
tracks in Clalifornia for training purposes. 



There will be plenty of ice racing in Chicago this 
winter as two matinees will be held each week at 
Washington Park and a loving cup has been given 
by tho Chicago Riding and Driving Club. There 
will be a cup or trophy contested for on every Wed- 
nesday and Saturday afternoon during the ice racing 
season. An organization has been formed which is 
known as the West Chicago Ice Speedway Associa- 
tion and this club will promote racing on the ice 
speedway just west of Garfield Park. Thomas M. 
Ilunter has been elected president, and tho racing 
will be conducted on same principles as a racetrack 
and with the same respect for rules. The harness 
horse lovers should have enough racing this winter 
to satisfy their desires. 



John E. Madden says: "You ask me if Lou Dillon's 
record will ever be broken? I would say 'sure, 'as I be- 
lieve like our race horses, trotters are being bred spot d- 
ier every year. Tracks are faster, sulky appliances and 
equipments are hourly being improved upon and with 
continued improvements in the breed of trotters, 
twenty years from now 1:50 may be tho champion 
mark and two minute horses by no means of unusual 
appearance. I look also for an expansion in trotting 
horse racing in the near future. The brilliant per- 
formances of stars like Lou Dillon, Major Delxar and 
Cresceus in one season, with Dan Patch and Prince 
Alert among the pacers as side issues, has given the 
game a great boost, and the next few years will see 
much new capital invested in light harness horses." 



There is in the hands of Treasurer N. T. Smith of 

the PacificCoastTrotting Horse Breeders Association 
at the present time tbo sum of $15,482 Of this sum 
over $13,000 is stake money belonging to the different 
futurity stakes established by the association. The 
figures show that the Breeders Association is in a very 
healthy state and the condition of things should be 
very gratifying to the members. This association 
has kept tho interest in harness racing alive in Cali- 
fornia when, through advorse legislation and other 
causes there was danger of its being entirely discon- 
tinued. The prospects for a good racing season for 
1904 are very bright, and the futurity stakes to be 
decided at the Breeders meeting will be big featurei 
of the season's racing. 



Horsemen who were on the Northern circuit in 1903 
state that one of the greatest prospects among the 
green trotters seen there during the racing season 
was H. U. Holman's Roy Benton. He is a sixteen 
hand horse, a good looker and one of the best gaited 
ones ever seen on a track. Roy Benton was bred In 
California and is by Benton Boy 2:l(i}, sire of Uncle 
Johnny (3) 2:19}, and his dam is Antera by Anteeo, 
second dam Debonair, dam of Rayanetta 2:27 by 
Sultan, third dam Ferguson mare by Belmont 64. 
Roy Benton is now six years old, and has had some 
work during his four and five-year-old form. He 
worked a full mile in 2:18 last year over the flow track 
at Irvington, with a half in 1:06, and is expected to 
trot very close to 2:10tnls year. Mr. Helman will race 
him in the slow classes this year. 



Among the horses consigned to the Blue Ribbon 
sale at Cleveland last May was Marengo King, bred 
and owned by the Santa Rosa Stock Farm. He had 
a record of 2:29}, which was no where near the 
measure of his speed, aad probably was not considered 
by the purchaser, J H. Brown, of Detroit, Michigan, 
who paid $3100 for him, as tho splendid individuality 
of the stallion, with his royal breeding, were worth 
the money. A full brother to Marengo King will be 
sold at the salesyard of Fred H Chase & Co., 1732 
Market street, in this c.ty on Thursday evening next. 
This is By Mack, consigned by Mr. James Le Baron 
Smith of this city. By Mack was named by the late 
Henry Pierce, of the Santa Rosa Stock Farm, who 
bred him, and who considered him one of tho best 
horses ever bred on that celebrated farm He is by 
tho great McKinney 2:1 1 5, sire of twenty-seven 2:15 
performers all with race records, and his dam is the 
$10,000 mare By By, own sister to Lockheart 2:08J 
and dam of Marengo King 2:29} by Nutwood 600, sire 
of the dams of 214 in tho list; second dam Rapidan, 
dam of Lockheart 2:08^, Rapid 2:22} and Capt. Mac 
2:29, by tho (jreat Dictator,' sire of Director 2:17, etc.; 
third dam Madam Ifeadly, dam of Export Prince 
2:13}. by Edwin Forrest; fourth dam by Mambrino 
Chief 11, etc. By Mack is a very handsome young 
horse, and should be a very valuable horse to breed 
to, as his individuality and breeding ar<' superb. In 
the hands of any live man be should earn a large 
sum in the stud every year.

[JanuakY {>, 1904 



The Horse's Coat. 

The general appearance and comfort of a horse Is 
greatly influenced by his coat, says a writer in a 
Canadian agricultural journal. A well groomed horse, 
lilie a Well dressed man or woman. Is pleasant to look 
upon. The coat of a horse, to a great extent, gives 
evidence of care or neglect. While a nice, fine, silky, 
glossy coat adds much to the general appearance of a 
horse, it requires a great deal of attention to keep it 
thus, especially during the late fall and winter 
months. Some horses have, naturally, much shorter 
and finer coats than others, and while good breeding 
has someinfluencein this respect, we frequently notice 
a vast difference in animals of the same breeding. 
Why this is we cannot determine, and simply are 
compelled to accept it as a fact. The age of the ani- 
mal has an influence; we notice that it is not usually 
possible to keep the coat ol younger very old animals 
in aj fine a condition as those of animals between 
adulthood and old age. Horses under five years or 
over twenty do not usually give the same returns for 
care and attention, as regards coat, as do those be- 
tween these ages. In the former case it may be that 
the more or less general fevered state of the system 
consequent upon dectition has an influence upon the 
coat, and in the latter case we are probably justified 
in assuming that the general vitality of the animal is 
more or less impaired, and the coat, as well as other 
parts of the anatomy, evidences the decrease of 
vitality. 

We frequently hear people say that they do not 
like grey or white horses because they are so hard to 
keep clean. A grey horse is no harder to keep clean 
than a dark colored one, but stains or dirt show much 
more plainly and it requires more attention to make 
him look clean. We often notice when a team consists 
of a grey and a dark colored horse and when care is 
taken to have them look well, that on close examina- 
tion the grey has a finer, shorter and cleaner coat 
than hia mate, from the fact that stains, etc , show so 
plainly on him that he receives more grooming. 
Daring the summer months there's little trouble ex- 
psrienoedin keeping a horse's coat nice, but as the 
weather becomes cold in the fall, nature demands 
that the horse be clothed accordingly, and there is a 
stronger tendency to growth of hair, and we may say 
that the coat loses its gloss in proportion to the length 
of hair. In order, then, that we may retain the re- 
quired gloss, we must take what measures we can to 
prevent the growth. In order to do this, we must, in 
addition to thorough and regular grooming, avoid un- 
necessary exposure, and when exposure is necessary, 
provide artificial protection when the animal is not 
in motion. As regards grooming, a horse should be 
thoroughly groomed twice daily ; not merely the ex- 
ternal surface of the coat brushed and rubbed, but 
the hair agitated thoroughly to the roots by working 
the comb or brush both with and against the grain of 
the hair, in order to remove dust, dandruff, etc., and 
thereby prevent any occlusion of the openings of the 
sweat glands, and keep the coat free from dust. 

Whenever a horse has been driven, ridden or 
worked hard enough to produce perspiration, it 
would be better to rub him until dry. This is the 
way in which race horses are used, and a well cared 
for race horse certainly presents a perfect coat. This, 
however, is not practicable in the ordinary stable. It 
would require more help than the average horse- 
owner can afford or is willing to keep. The next best

thing to do is to clothe him warmly, place him in a 
comfortable stall, excluded from drafts, and when 
his blanket has become moist from the perspiration, 
remove it and supply a dry one. When he is thor- 
oughly dry, a g*od grooming will remove the dried 
perspiration, free the matted hair and remove all 
dust and dirt. Of course, horses must not be left out 
in the fields or paddocks all night when the weather 
is liable to be cold, if you wish to preserve short coats. 
The ad visability of wearing clothing in the stable is 
open to discussion, but if the stable be not very com- 
fortable, we think blankets should be worn, and even 
in warm stables we think light clothing should be 
worn, as it prevents dust from entering the coat. In 
all cases in cold weather, when the animal is not in 
action, whether standing in the stable or standing 
outside in harness, his body should be clothed suf- 
ficiently to protect him from the wind and cold, and 
when it is necessary to drive or work a horse in a 
rain or snow storm, it is better he should be covered 
with a waterproof covering, in order to keep the skin 
d ry and warm. 

Cold and dampness stimulate the growth of hair, 
in order to protect the skin; hence, when we are par- 
ticular about the coat we must, as far as possible, 
avoid this stimulation. When horses are being used 
for slow work not demanding sufficient exercise to 
tend to perspiration, in very cold, though dry, 
weather it is wise to wear blankets under the harness 
to protect the skin. In most cases, when reasonable 
care is exercised on the lines above mentioned, we 
will succeed in maintaining a short, sleek coat on our 
horses, but there are exceptions. As stated, age has 
an influence, and there are certain individuals that 
from some utaccountable reason or predisposition, 
will grow a long coat, notwithstanding the most care- 
ful attention. I know a horse that during the sum- 
mer season has an ordinary coat, that in the fall, de- 
spite all possible attention and care, will grow long 
and curl, until it very strongly resembles the coat of 
a well cared for water spaniel, the most peculiar coat 
I ever saw on a horse. This occurs every fall with 
this horse. There are a few individuals with this or 
somewhat similar characteristics, and, of course, all 
that can be done in such cases, if we insist upon hav- 
ing a short coat, is to clip. 



Fun oa the Road in New York. 

Mr. P. F. MouUon, of Menlo Park, who is at present 
in New York, writes the Breeder and Sportsman 
that there is lots of fun on the roads in the snow 
there at the present time. In a ride through Seventh 
Avenue, and on the Riverside Drive and in Central 
Park Mr. Moulton saw many of the crack speedway 
horses. Homewaid 2:]3J, bred by R. O. Newman, of 
Visalia, was driven on the Harlem road by his owner, 
Isaac Fleming, and looks like a king of the snow 
horses for this winter. Stepping down the hill from 
Highbridge at a clip which sent the snow flying 
higher than the heads of his rivals. Homeward beat 
Claug Bohling's Indian Jim 2:15J, and George A. 
Coleman's Kingwood 2:17J in clever style. 

Nathan Straus was out behind the famous Cobwebs 
2:12 jogging along in company with A. B. Gwathmey, 
who drove Senator Mills 2:12^, the horse that out- 
trotted Queen Wilkes in the brushes last fall. 

Among the others seen on Seventh avenue and in 
Central Park were Colonel Alexander Newburger, 
who drove Smilax 2:21J, a chestnut pacing mare by 
Sidney; Arthur Lape with a black trotting mare by 
Guy Wilkes; Dr. W. C. Gilday with the chestnut 
mare Pet; Andrew Freedman driving a handsome 
black cob; F. G. Schmidt with the lightning pacer 
Mercury Wilkes 2:14i; W. G. Leland with Diablo and 
mate, a pair of stately black trotters; J. L. Dodge 
with the pacing mare Precious 2:153; Michael Reid 
driving his bay trotter Farmer. 



Hallie Hinges and Harry Marvin. 

Entries are evidently coming in very satisfactorily 
for J. L. McCarthy & Son's sale at Portland, if we 
may judge by their ad. this week. The Mayview^ 
Stock Farm, of Garfield county, Washington, has 
consigned thirty head, including the fast pacing 
mare Hallie Hinges 2:18.1, who good judges say can 
pace a mile in 2:12. Among other consignments is 
Harry Marvin 2:22J, a fast trotter and an ideal road 
horse. 

This sale will be a grand opportunity for California 
breeders and horsemen to sell some well-bred brood 
mares and young racing prospects for the high-dollar, 
a« this sal« is the "blue ribbon" event of the north in 
the spring, and horsemen and breeders from all over 
the northwest gather at this sale and if a horse will 
not bring bis value at Portland in March there is no 
use looking further for a buyerin the northwest. The 
catalogue is filling up rapidly and those contemplat- 
ing making a consignment to this sale should do so at 
OQce. For entry blanks and all particulars write 
J. L. McCarthy cV Son, Room 8, Hamilton Bldg., 
Portland, Ore. The entries close February 1, 1904. 



Producing Male and Female Lines. 

In an extended pedigree of a horse, the pedigree of 
the sire and of the sir«s of the first, second, third, 
fourth and fifth dams and so on down for a few 
generations, constitute the major blood lines as well 
as the proximal and most recent in the individual 
traced. This being true, one may reasonably infer 
that such are the blood lines moit worthy of con- 
sideration in estimating the value of a pedigree, 
especially when a good prospect is sought for breed- 
leg purposes. This inference, however, brings us to 
the antithe&is of the Bruce Lowe theory of breeding. 
Instead of placing a high estimate upon a female line 
of descent that traces to a particular dam remotely 
distant, it considers of greatest value the producing 
qualities of sires of each and all of the r'ams ai far 
down as we care to trace the pedigree in the female 
line. Since the pedigree of the sires of the dams 
make up the pedigree of nearly the whole, the 
qualities of these sires must also make up the quali- 
ties of nearly the whole, if t he qualities of a sire and 
of his male and female ancestors can be transmitted 
to his offspring. 

Making deductions from the foregoing premises 
prompted the writer several years ago to attempt to 
formulate for his own use a theory of breeding run- 
ners and trotters, which perhaps even at this late 
date may bo worthy of some consideration in study- 
ing a pedigree. The plan or theory involved the 
tracing out of what may bo termed potent producing 
sire lines or chains, each individual that serves as a 
link in any producing male ancestral chain to posfeis 
the following qualifications: His sire, himself and a 
son (or daughter) must have produced a high class 
performer who won one or more of the mo^t im- 
portant events. Suppose, for illustration, that the 
Derby, Oaks and St. Ledger are adopted as the 
standard stake events of Englarud. Then to form a 
link in an ancestral producing chain or sire line a 
horse must possess the following qualificationf-: His 
sire, himself, and his son (or daughteri must have 
each produced a winner of the Derby, Oaks or St. 
Ledger- The greater the number of generations 
through which these qualifications in a sirecsn bo 
met, the greater the number of links will there be in 
the sire chain, the longer will be the chain and the 
greater or more valuable will be its potency or 
momentum of superior producing qualities to be 
carried through succeeding generations. To numeji- 
cally state and calculate this producing or ' bret ding 
on" quality, each individual in an ancestral prod uc- 
ing chain or sire line could be given a number or 
index which would indicate the generation that be 
represents, and the higher this number the belter 
should be his producing and "breeding on"qualili<8 
(see appended table of sire lines). 

For illustration let the breeding qualities of Star 
Ruby, Golden Garter and Candlemas be calculuti d 
and compared as to sires and as to sires of the first 
five generations of the female line of ancestry.

According to this calculation of male or sire Hi es 
the potency or "breeding on" qualities in Star Ruby, 
Golden Garter and Candlemas would be in the ratios 
;i2, 28 and 24, or .5J, 43 and 4. Of course the greater 
the number of dams from the first down, in the female 
line, that can show sires who form links in producing 
sire chains the more value should be given thej^edi- 
eree, notwithstanding the fact that the average indtx 
of calculation may be a small figure. 

Having considered the producing male lines of the 
sire and the sires of each of the dams for several gen- 
erations down, there should also be considered and 



January 9, 1904

estimated or calculated the producing male lines in 
the dame of these sires. The dams of the sires should 
have a strong producing female line for several genor- 
alioas down, each matron in this female line having 
for her male or sire line a strong prod ucing chain of 
sevaral links. To estimate the value of producing 
male lines in the sire of the individual and in the sires 
of his several dams without estimation at the same 
time of the male lines in the several dams of these 
sires, would be wholly inconsistent with the theory 
herein set forth of gaining a momentum of "breeding 
on" quality through producing sire lines or ehain^ 
extending through several generations without an in- 
terruption of transmitting potency. An interruption 
for one gene 'ation of this transmitting potency should 
break the chain, for, like any chain with a weak link, 
it is broken into two so far as ability to overcome re- 
aistance is concerned— a new start point being required . 

A producing female line, extending through even a 
few generations without interruption, is not worthy 
of full consideration unless each matron in this female 
line, or all of the matrons in it, trace in tke male line 
for at least a few generations through only potent 
producing ancestors. However, a producing female 
line, tracing in the confluent male lines through ex 
clusively potent producing ancestors for several gen- 
erations back, is entitled to the very highest estimate 
of value. In so far as the Bruce Lowe theory of 
breeding can be made to conform to these conditions 
it is doubtless a safe guide of probably even superior 
merit; but its application without a producing female 
line, the matrons in which trace in the male line for 
several generations through only producing sires, 
would deprive it of the very conditions necessary to 
its consistency. A strong female producing line once 
established should pass on and lengthen th.'ough suc- 
ceeding generations without defilement from a non- 
producing sire line; otherwise what may be imagined 
the momentum of superior producing quality will be 
resisted, if not interrupted or lost, and a new start 
point will be required. While untried sires, so far 
as breeding and individuality are concerned, may be 
worthy of opportunity for mating with producing 
female lines, yet failures in such opportunity have in 
the past caused the irredeemable loss to the breeding 
industry of an innumerable collection of good female 
lines. Why not preserve and perpetuate the strong 
chain of producing female line and lengthen it by 
mating with only the sires that produce extra well 



and trace for several generations through a etroDS 

producing sire line, and compel the young sires, how- 
ever they may bo bred, to demonstrate and prove 
their p*od ucing qualities before they are allowed to 
mate and possibly contaminate the last generation of 
a producing female line? 

A form for writing a pedigree that will facilitate the 
study of sires in a female line is given herewith and 
marked B. 

At the present day the selection of both matron and 
siro so bred that each and all of the ancestors for 
several generations back have produced extra well, 
does not relieve the breeder who would strive to 
excel from the necessity of studying the problems of 
breeding. If any breeder thinks Ibct he has ideas 
worthy of some consideration, he should bring thfm 
in some form to the attention of other breeders. 
Hence my excuse for offering the ideas herein ex- 
pressed. 

In the table appended an offurt has been made to 
trace out the producing male or sire line, based upon 
the producing of winners of the Derby, Oaks and St. 
Leger, each sire being required to BulDll the follow- 
ing qualifications: His sire, himself and one of his 
sons having produced a winner of the Derby, Oaks or 
St Leger. ICach individual in a sire line is given a 
number or index, written at the head of the column, 
which represents his generation in the sire line. 
Doubtless there are many errors in the table, as most 
of the information for tabulation was derived from 
sale catalogues, almanacs acd catalogues of stock 
farms. The table is also incomplete, since it was 
made several years ago and does not include sires 
that are entitled to place in it through the perfor- 
mance of their produce in winning these events during 
recent years. My only excuse in offering for publica- 
tion this incorrect and incomplete table is that time 
for its completion and correction could not be obtained 
from business, that it is necessary to explain much 
written in this article and that its publication may 
induce some one to compile a more correct and com- 
plete table of the same kind. The publication of cor- 
rect tables based upon the following standards of 
qualification would be of great value to breeders: 

First — The sire himself, his sire, and his son, to 
have produced winners of the Derby, Oaks or St. 
Leger. 

Second — The sire himself, his sire, and his son or 
daughter to have produced winners of the Derby, 



Oaks or St. Leger. 

Third— The sire himself, bis sire or dam, and hl« 
son or daughter to have produced winners of the 
Derby, Oaks or St. Lecer. 

Fourth— The dam herself, her dam and her daughter 
to have produced winners of the Derby, Oaks and St. 
Leger. 

Fifth— The dam herself, her dam or sire and her 
daughter or son to have produced winners of the 
Dorby, Oaks or St. Leger. 

The writer does not wish It understood that for 
breeding purposes he would reject a sire who Is a 
good producer, but does not happen to form a link in 
the sire chains based upon the producing of winners 
of the Derby, Oaks or St. Leger. The producing of 
winners of as high class as the winners of iheseevente 
should be given equal consideration as evidence of 
transmitting potency. 

The fact that most good sires trace to Eclipse 
through producing male lines, compels us to favor 
for a sire such as trace in the sire line to this ancestor. 
I'roducidg potency would probably bo intensified if 
thes're's first dam also traced in the male line to 
Eclipse. As reasons tor this assertion would requlie 
considerable space, if clearly stated, they are omilUd.

Flying Fox's Service Fee $3000. 

M Edouard Blanc, the owner of famous Flying 
Fox, has just issued a curious pronunciamento. In 
future the high-priced son of Orme and Vampire will 
be permitted to serve only ten mares besides his own- 
er's, at a fee of each, with the remarkable pro- 
viso that none must come from any French breeders' 
establishment. Whether the wonderful success of 
the first crop of Flying Fox youngsters has made M. 
Blanc desirous of having none of them to oppose bis 
home raised ones in France, or whether his intention 
is to make the fame of his sire as world-wide as pos- 
sible, is hard to say. \t any rate, his last move gives 
the much-talked-of-horse another record, for his fe« 
now exceeds the $2.")00 for which the Duke of Port- 
land still lets a favored few use his pet, St. Simon. 
What is more, M. Blanc will experience no difficulty, 
for a couple of years at least, in finding breeders will- 
inc and even anxious to pay the high price he 
demands.

Winners of Field Trials, 1903. 

Twenty-tive field trial meetings for last year as 
against thirty meetings in 19U2 bbows a slight falling 
off la the number of club trials run. Several clubs

GOSSIP FOR SPORTSMEN. 



Coast Field Trials. 



Oa Monday, near Bakersfield, the twenty-first an- 
nual trials of the Pacific Coast Field Trial Club will 
commence. Birds are reported to be plentiful and 
cover favorable, a dry spell may have bad some in- 
fluence on scent, but to offset this it Is claimed that 
the heavy and continuous fogs prevailing In the trial 
ground districts will make the ground just about 
right. . 

Judge W. S. Bell arrived in this city Thursday and 
was met and taken in charge by Secretary Albert 
Betz and Dr. C. W. Hlbbard. He will go to Bakers- 
field this evening and look over the grounds to-mor- 
row. A number of the club members and other 
sportsmen will start for Bakersfield to-morrow. 

A notable feature of this meeting Is that, besides 
the fat purses, there will bo three cups for each event 
and also the champion cup. The latter has been won 
twice by W. .S. Tevis. The cups offered In the other 
events wi>re all donated by club members — to avoid 
-the chanc if a member winning his own donation, 
there was no specified rating made for the prizes when 
donated. This [jracUcally leaves the distribution of 
the cups one of choice; the winner of first place get- 
ting the Initial selection, second choice going to the 
second place winner and third dog to take the re- 
maining cup. 

The donors of the cups are: Members' stake — W. 
W. Richards, J. W. Flynn and Western Field. 
Derby— J. E Terry, J. H. Schumacher and W. S. 
Tevls. All- Age— Frank Maskey, Clinton E. Worden 
and W. W. Van Arsdale. 



The Union Metallic Cartridge Company will hence 
forth be represented on the road by Mr. "Hip" 
Justins, His route, unless we are greatly rnistaken, 
will take In the southern portion of the State and 
Arizona. Mr. Justins Is a well known and extremely 
popular sportsman. Previously he had a position of 
trust and responsibility under thesuavo abd esteemed 
Mr. E. T. Allen for ten years. When the latter 
gentleman retired from active business, Mr. Justins 
assumed an Important billet with the now well known 
sporting goods house, the H. E. Skinner Co., which 
firm bought out Mr. Allen's business. 

Mr. Justins Is well known to the trade and per- 
sonally acquainted with the majority of sportsmen on 
the Coast, having traveled extensively for the E. T- 
Allen Co., prior to the change. His genial personality 
and thorough acquaintance with the manifold details 
of the sporting goods trade is a guarantee fund of 
future success for which the Breeder and Sports- 
man takes the liberty of offering congratulations in 
advance. 

Both shooting and fishing conditions have recently 
taken on a decidedly pleasing aspect to sportsmen. 
Duck shooting has been good for a week past. Near 
Collinsville excellent bags were shot last Sunday by 
W. W. Richards, G. H. T. Jackson and John 
Lemmer, the birds were mostly mallards, canvasback 
were fairly represented however. On the Sulsun, 
generally speaking, results were good. The same 
conditions prevailed on the Alameda and Alviso 
marshes. 

The "cans" however are very wise and fly extremely 
high. Last Sunday, on Petaluma creek, the largest 
flight of these ducks and on* of the biggest bunches 
of "cans" that the writer has observfd in many years, 
came from the Petazuma marshes and lit out for the 
bay. They were up so high that It would have taken 
a rifle ball to stop one of them. t/at; MM 

Posssbly the greatest canvasback shoot In the 
history of the Sonoma marsh, or any of the marshes, 



An effort will also be made to arrange tor a Souther n 
California trap shooting circuit after the pamphlet 
has been issued, so that the coming trap season in 
the south will be alivelj one. 




H. JISTINS 
Traveling Representative U. M. C. Co. 



for that matter, was had on the Alameda Gun Club 
preserve near McGills, three weeks ago. Nineteen 
members each secured the limit of 50 ducks at that 
time. Some good bags were also made on the preserve 
lastSunday, 

Good duck shooting can be had at Grafton on the 
overflowed lands. 

Geese shooting is now in order. Thousands upon 
thousands of gray and white geese, with a sprinkling 
of honkers and brants are now on the Colusa plains. 
Staten Island Is also "infested" by geese. We say 
Infested becausethese birds do an Incalculable amount 
of damage annually to the wheat sprouting in the 
fields. Mr. E. E. Drake of this city and F. W. Sheard 
of Tacoma, bagged over 300 gray and white geese 
near Willows in two days' shooting this week. 

A hie run of steelhead in Russian river now on will 
draw a large contingent of local anglers to that grand 
stream tomorrow. 

A number of fine fish were taken at Point Reyes 
last Sunday. 

Striped bass fishing is still good in San Antonio 
creek. 

The Los Angeles County Fish and Game Protective 
Association has now 850 members on the roll, its list 
Is steadily increasing and the organization Is doing 
good work In the cause of game protection. 

Secretary L Herzog writes us that he will issue 
3000 pomphlets for 1904, one of which will be mailed 
to every member of the association and the balance 
used d uring the year to further the work of the as- 
sociation. 

The booklet will contain several new features (as 
compared to that Issued In 1903), among which are 
the game laws of Southern California, gun clubs and 
their secretaries; a list of Southern California trap 
shooters' clubs and alistofthe rifle teams ofSouthern 
California. 



A California Circuit is a Possibility. 

Mr. Arthur Letts informs us that there is a good 
prospect for an A. K. C. show in Los Angeles. There 
will be an effort made to have the southern metropolis 
included in the circuit of the other Coast cities. Mr. 
Letts is the owner of the good Collie Ravenswood and 
is an enthusiastic fancier. He invites suggestions 
from Coast fanciers as to the time of holding the 
show and for other data of mutual interest. 

There is no reason why a bench show can not be 
made successful and attractive for there are many 
lovers of the dog down south and a number of good 
dogs could be brought out at a Los Angeles show. 

An open air show for one day in Lawrence, Santa 
Clara county, at the Oak Grove Kennels, is on the 
tapis for next month. In April a show is listed for 
San Jose and following will come a summer show in 
Santa Cruz. These three shows will probably be held 
under P. K. L. rules. 

The spring show of the San Francisco Kennel Club 
will take place in April or early in May. 

From the foregoing it will be seen that there is now 
a healthy ripening interest among the fancy fo.- a 
series of bench shows in California this year. Theie 
Is no reason why a strong combinaticn could not be 
made of the material al hand. In the event of this 
being bronght about, the enthusiasm will be cum- 
ulative and the possibilities of the intioduclion of 
"recruits" and "new blood" will be of inestimable 
value and advantage to Coast dogdom. 

It may not be far fetched to suggest the feasibility 
of a connecting link, say at Santa Barbara, for a neat 
little show was given at that delightful city on the 
ocean shore in July 1899; the second annual show of 
the Santa Barbara Kennel Clnb. 

What the affiliations are, or have been, will not 
cut any particular figure, the success of the project 
can be achieved by a unity of effort and cohesion of 
doggy interests. Whether under A. K. C. or P. K. 
L. auspices, Is to quite an extent a secondary con- 
sideration, the main object being circuit organization. 

In the event of this, to be hoped for, amalgamation 
of the fanciers, it will undoubtedly redound aleo to 
the benefit of the northern show interests. 

One good season, and the project is a feasible one, 
will do for Coast dogdom what has been ardently 
desired for a long time past. 

If this scheme is to be made a go, there is no time 
to delay and the sooner there is an understanding all 
round and the preliminary work started all the more 
certain will there be a vast and rapid advance In the 
affairs of the Coast fancy. 



Mr. Leon Greenebaum is truly meeting with sorce 
exceedingly hard luck in his Bulldog kennels. Some 
time ago he lost the good bitch Endcliffe Pleasure. 
She was In whelp, and breaking ont from her kennel 
one day got Into a mlxup with another dog, she 
died shortly afterwards. King Commando has only 
recently come into condition again, having been 
under treatment for several weeks. Early this week 
Mr. Greenebaum received the discouraging news that 
Endcliffe Forceps was dead. This well known stud 
dog and bench winner had been placed with a frietd, 
at Mission San Jose, who in response to a message to 
send Forceps to this city telegraphed that the dog 
had gone to the canine majority. The genial pro- 
prietor of the Ellesgy Kennels has our sympathy for 
such a continuous run of mishaps. 



Mrs. K. Bradley-Dyne has purchased the Great 
Dane King Edward from James Cole of Kansas City. 
This dog was one of two placed on exhibition at the 
December show by Mr. Cole. In this accession to the 
Saturna kennels we believe Mrs. Bradley-Dyne has 
one of the best young stud dogs on the Coast. Whj 
this dog was overlooked by local fanciers when he 
was here is a puzzle we could never fathom. 



A Sportsman's Calendar. 

A noble elk in his death throes and lying prone on 
a rocky slope — in close proximity the dismounted, 
eager-faced hunter on the qui vive Kith rifle at 
"port" and ready finger on the trigger, a well trained, 
high strung and heavily caparisoned hunting pony 
waiting, held by the frail anchorage of a trallirg 
bridle; the whole stirring incident framed in a back- 
ground of green pines and a picturesque vista of 
rangy mountain distances, such is an illustration of a 
hunting scene portrayed in living colors on the 
calendar of the Savage Ai ms Co. for 1904 This 
calendar is one that every sportsman should have. 
The painting is by the magic brush of Mr. Carl 
Rungis, the noted painter of wild animals and their 
habitats. Get one by sending 10 cents in postage 
stamps to T. P. Peckham, Savage Arms Co., Utica, 
N. Y. It is worth having. 

Duck and Quail Outfits. 

The demand at Skinner's keeps up (or sportsmen's outfits 
ammunition and guns. A large and new stock of goods has been 
added to fill the demand for hunting suits, rubber booti and 
hunters' footwear; canvas and folding wooden decoys, gun cases 
and a new design of leather-covered shell boxes. Peters Factory 
Loaded Shells are unequaled. Skinner's place Is em Market 
street. You can get anything there you need for duck or quail 
shooting. Send for a catalogue. If you haven't the time to come, 
and try a mall order. , 



Strike! — if they don't give you Jackson's Napa 
Soda when you ask for it.

THE FARM. 




Use of Oil Meal. 



Quinto Stock Farm Cattle. 

The accompanying cute of animals on 
tlie Quinto Stoi-k Farm at Ingomar, 
Merced county, California, are represen- 
tative of the famouB hen! which adiieil 
fresh laurela to its already long list by 
taking 41 preuiiuma at tlie California 
State Fair of 1903. The picture of 
Chief of Valley View 4th is from a 
photograph taken in his yearling 
form. He won first premium and 
sweepstakes as a bul calf at the Cali- 
fornia StHte Fair of 1902, and first 
premium in both open and f^tate class 
for bulls between 18 and 24 months 
and junior cliampion sweepstakes at 
the California State Fair of 1903. 

Professor Carlyle in judging the cat- 
tle at the California State Fair of 190:i 
remarked about Chief of Valley View 
4th aa follows : 

"He haa that peculiar cylindrical 
form which is the most popular now 
for meat production. I don't care 
whether it is in beef cattle, hogs or 
sheep or what class of animal is being 
put on the market the round or cylin- 
drical form with no prominences in 
any part is the quality we moat par- 
ticularly want." 

At latest advices Chief of Valley 
View 4th is constantly improving and 
showing his remarkable depth as well 
as cylindrical form and proving a 
wonderful breeder. There are also 
shown some of the prize winning 
heifers on the (Quinto Stock F'arm 
that will be bred to Chief of Valley View 
4th this year. The results are easily fore- 
told and the progeny from this cross will 
be heard from in the show ring at a later 
dav. 



The heavy use of oil meal with fat- 
tening cattle and especially with hogs 
tends to make the flesh rather soft and 
oily, something not desirable in t>eef pro- 
duction and especially objectionable in 
the production of pork, says W. A. Henry. 
The limited use of oil meal should not 
prove injurious to broodsows, but would 
be very helpful, especially in preventing 
costiveness, which may occur at or near 
the time of parturition. Such a condition 
should be carefully avoidtd by the ues o' 



Geese. 

Old geese 'ay a greater numl>erof larger 
eggs anil are more reliable than young 
birds and lay more fertile eggs. I'.rced- 
ing geese should have considerable exer- 
cise and be kept moderately thin in llosh 
through the winter by light feeding an<l a 
free range or facilities for swiminiiig. 
The Toulouse geese lay well, but often do 
not sit. The I'.mbden geese lay fewer 
eggs, but make better mothers, (ieeso 
are graziers, and too much grain is not 
good for them. To insure fertile eggs they

The AlfaUa Hog. 



It will not be a great while until the 
term ' alfalfa hog" means a different type 
from that grown East. When the rail- 
roads master the problem of carrying hogs 
through without disease quite a per cent 
of the pork of the country will be grown 
west of the corr: belt, where alfalfa does 
better than in the Central States We 
look for the time when our pigs will be 
shipped East to cattle feeders and farmers 
who have more corn than hogs. These 
shotes, when put on a heavy corn diet, 
whether on alfalfa or not, make rapid 
gains and, we believe, will make better 
use of corn than hogs grown on a corn ra- 
tion. Everybody in this country knows 
that hogs grown on alfalfa have much 
greater resisting power to cholera than 
those grown on corn and subjected to the 
same disease under the same conditions.

Good Sized Bones Are Necessary. 



Small bones in a large hog is a condi- 
tion that should not be desired. If the 
bones are very light it is a fact that the 
percentage of flesh covers the deficiency. 
But would it not be better to have still 
more flesh supported by still stronger and 
heavier bones? A big hog should have 
big bones and little hogs little bones. 
Our best breeders and judges insist on 
strong limbs and good sized \>onen as 
necessary to the vigor and symmetry of 
the hog.— Farm aiid lianch. 

Missouri, according to Dr. V. B. Mum- 
ford, is now the second mule state in the 
Union [Texas being first], with .300,000 
animals, valued at $23,000 000. or » per 
cent of the total in the United States

South Africa during the Boer war, is 
remarkable.

are valuable for correctives. 

The year 1903 has been a red-letter year 
for Hampshires in the United States. 
They made the greatest show of the breed 
in this country at the International. Re- 
ports from every part of the country show 
that the breeders are cleaned out of sur- 
plus sheep of both sexes, and the largest 
Hampshire breeder in the country, Hon. 
Robert Taylor, reports orders for 3000 
more Hampshire rams than he could fill. 
A well known Indiana breeder of one of 
the smaller Down breeds has written to 
all our Hampshire advertisers for prices 
on ewes, and says they have none for sale

tations are on the cards, and Hampshire

The efforts of the government to re-stock 
the exhausted stock ranges of the west 
witii grasses should meet with universal 
approval. This work under federal direc - 
tion has been at least measurably success- 
ful in the mountain ranges of Washing- 
ton, and it is about to be undertaken on 
68 square miles of tvpical range in Ari- 
zona, which has recently been fenced in 
for this purpose. Thoughtful western 
men who have canvassed this question 
believe it can successfully be done all over 
the west. If the department of agriciil 
tare shall have exclusive charge of thiH 
work, there is little doubt of a siicjefsfiil 
issue to the undertaking.

Brine for Keeping Pork Meats. 

For one hundred pounds of meat, take 
about eight [wunds of salt, two pounds of 
sugsr, one pint of New Orleans raolasses 
and two ounces of saltpetre. Pulverize 
the saltpetre, dissolve it in water, and 
with the sugar and molasses stir it into 
the brine. It requires three gallons of 
water with the eight pound," of salt to 
make the brine strong enough. Old 
barrels must be well scalded and scraped 
l>efore using ugain.

The highest priced cattle soM on the

those fattened on the .\gricultnral College

they brought a hundre<l cents on the

o 

Cows give a more regular quantity in 
winter and the milk is more uniform in 
quality than in summer, lyecause the feed 
is of a regular cjuality and quantity in 
winter, but often very irregular in sum- 
mer, owing to the varying condition of 
ti e pasture.

There are two ol)jective points towards 
which ambitious breeders mav strive— 
one is the show ground and the other is 
the market. There is profit in both. If 
successful in the exhibit there will be no 
trouble about getting a reasonably fancy 
price. If stock is good there is always a 
good market at a fair price.

The Science of Breeding. 

[P. J. Shields In Live Stock and Dairy Journal.] 
The BO-cAUeJ "Scienc* of Breeding" is 
one of the firet imporUnce to agriculture 
and liveetock husbandry; if we knew 
more of the laws governing reproduction 
and the liniitationB and influences of 
heredity, we could breed with much 
greater certainty ; if we knew more, we 
might in breeding approach our idealR. 
But we are woefully ignorant on this 
Bubject; it has not become a science un- 
less the one true and proven law that 
"like produces like, or the likeneei of 
some ancestor" makes it so. And this 
law would make a sufficient foundation 
for a true "science of breeding," if the 
influences could be controlled for its gen- 
eral application. Within each of the 
breeds of animals are broadly divergent 
types; controlling them ar« breeders with 
widely different standards. The difficulty 
is therefore constant to procure the "like" 
which the breeder so much desires. 
I have a mare with a trotting record 
2:10. I find a trotting stallion with 



of 



naare with 



a like record and mate my 
him in the hope of obtaining a foal which 
will do as well. It may happen that 
the sire was one of those happy results 
occasionally obtained from breeding in a 
strong current of thoroughbred blood and 
that the mare is bred upon a foundation 
of excellent California mustang blood. 
The result of the mating may and proba- 
bly will be a colt whose dominant charac- 
teristics are thoroughbred and mustang, 
with enough standard inheritances to 
constitute a nondescript mongrel. So it 
can easily be seen that breeding a 2:10 
horse to a 2:10 mare is not always breed 
ing like to like. 

But it may be said that the trotting 
breed has not yet been completely made 
is not yet absolutely pu>"P. and *''^n 
blood is still permitted in it. Admitting 
this to be true, I will take a breed which 
is admittedly pure and liaa been possibly 
for centuries, the .lersey, and the same 
thing is true. 1 have a medium sized, 
well finished Jersey cow which gives a 
good quantity of rich milk and is of the 
exact character which I would like to 
breed. I send to some prominent Eastern 
lireeder and secure a high priced and 
handsome bull which I breed to her. 
Will her resulting calf be like and as 
eoid as herself? I find that my model 
cow was produced by breeding a la ge 
loarse St. Lambert cow, which gave a 
vnry large quantity of rather poor milk, 
but which because of its volume produced 
a large amount of butter, to a fine island 
type of bull frjm a family of small but 
exceedingly rich milkers. My cow was 
the rare product of the combined excel 
lence of both parents without the faults 
of either. The bull I bred to her 1 find 
to havj been bred hy a man strongly 
inoculated with the color craze. lie is 
"light cream fawn" and was bred from 
such an ancestry without regard to their 
possesBion of the essentials of a dairy 
breed. And so the calf upon which 1 had 
set my heart, from such a scattered 
heredity picked up the thin milk of one 
ancestor, the small quantity of another 
and the absence of udder and teats of 
third. And the solid cream fawn skin 
with which she was covered only made 
more conspicuous her utter worthlessnees 
And so breeding one Jersey to another is 
not always breeding like to like. 

.These illustrations could be carried 
through all the breeds. My purpose in 
calling attention to these divergent influ- 
ences and types within the various breeds 
is'to emphasize the necessity of a uniform 
harmoiiV of breeding, of havine a fixed 
standard,^ ngl^ type and of so directing 
circumstances as to require and practically 
coerce all breeders into adopting and 
breeding towards it. 

A man who calls himself a Hereford 
breeder or a Holstein breeder should not 
be recognized as such when he produces 
animals which have not bred type, and 
which do not conform to some well estab- 
iflhed standard for his particular breed. 



Kesponsibility for the divergent types 
within the several breeds lies ehiefly per- 
haps with the several associations controll- 
ng them, but the agricultural colleges 
cannot escape their share of responsibility 
for it. The college herds are mostly as 
various as the personality of their several 
staffs. One herd will be made up of large, 
rather coarse Holsteins and Jerseys, an- 
other with fine and neat animals of these 
breeds, while a third will choose fine of 
one and coarse of another, and of course 
the instruction in each college follows the 
forms of its cattle. The professors from 
these colleges act as judges at most of our 
live stock shows. At one, a leading pro- 
fessor with a national reputation, in judg- 
ing a certain breed where all of its ex- 
tremes are represented, awards the prizes 
in a certain order. The same cattle are 
shown the following week in a neighboring 
State where another famous instructor in 
animal industry officiates as judge, and he 
exactly reverses the previous awards. 
This is scandalous and serves not to en- 
ighten breeders, but to confuse them. 
Fancy what mathematics would be if in 
one institution it was taught that two 
and two made four and in another that it 
made five I Would it be a science or a 
system? Ko nor is breeding as too fre- 
quently practiced, and as I am sorry to 
say too frequently taught. 

There is often more difference between 
two types of animals within a given breed, 
both recognized as correct, than there is 
between average animals of different 
breeds A.nd the results following the 
mating of such types is as uncertain as 
from crossing the different breeds. Let 
our college professors unite upon one type 
for each of the breeds and educate the 
people to it. Let the live stock papers co- 
operate with them, and soon the so-called 
breeders ol animals which do not conform 
to it will win no prizes at exhibitions, 
will not be recognized as breeders and 
will find no sale for their product. I am 
afraid that our agricultural professors lack 
courage. Can it be that they fear to offend 
powerful breeders or influenti<il interests? 
Thev should listen to the splendid plea 
for truth and its pursuits without fear or 
without favor made by our distinguished 
President AVheeler in a recent address in 
Arizona. Our government gives liberal 
support to our experiment stations; our 
States generously endow our agricultural 
colleges. We look to them for truth, and 
truth is the same in every college herd 
and in every show ring, and if the stand 
ards set there are different they cannot 
both be true. 

In other things too, we look to them for 
original research, for constant contribu 
tions to that enlarging knowledge which 
constitutes the new and true "science of 
agriculture." And I feel that they should 
have contributed more to our knowledge 
of heredity and the laws governing repro. 
duction than they have. They have not 
done with animal life what Luther Bur- 
bank has done with vegetable. Their 
opportunity has been great as there are 
Experiment Stations in every state in the 
Union, where experiments could have 
been conducted by the scientific men in 
charge. These stations represent every 
variety of food, climate, location and 
physical environment. The whole system 
represents an ideal agency for research, 
and through it, much of the darkness and 
many of the doubts which now confront 
the breeder should have been dissolved. 
But we are still without knowledge as to 
the relative influence of the sire and the 
dam upon their offspring. We do not 
know of the effect produced upon the new 
life by an enfeebled or diseased condition 
of one or both of the parents, nor as to 
whether that effect would result from 
such condition before conception or after- 
wards. We are still in doubt with re- 
spect to that vast and important field of 



association affects color will it not also 
modify form? Will the manner in which 
a prospective mother is treated, the food 
she eats, the purpose to which she is put, 
the work she is made to preform, in- 
fluence the future form and function of 
her produce? And when the young thing 
is born can it be rescued from mediocrity 
or condemed to it, by the environment to 
which it is subjected? We have so much 
tradition and "fireside science" on these 
questions that we should like to have 
them given such settlement as the facilities 
of our experiment system permits of. 

Another question about which knowl- 
edge should be possible, and about which 
the colleges are without any agreement, 
is, which of the various breeds are the 
better for the purposes for which they 
are bred? Which is the best breed of 
poultry for laying purposes ; which breed 
of cattle produce meat most economically; 
which breed of swine does likewise? 
Which is the better breed of cattle for 
the production of butter, Giiernseys, 
Jerseys or Holsteins? We have no 
harmony of answer to this question, and 
we believe that we should have. There 
cannot be two best breeds, and consider- 
ing the difference in the various typee> 
the sources from which they came, the 
peoples which made the breeds, and the 
environments which produced them, it 
seems most improbable that there ihould 
be two yf exactly equal value for special 
dairy use. And we ask the colleges to 
tell us which is the best dairy breed, and 
why? And we expect an answer, and of 
course but one answer. AVhen the answer 
comes it will affect property values, it will 
hurt patrons of the schools, as it will 
offend iegislatois upon which they are 
dependent for support. But science aims 
only at truth, and tells it feerlessly. It 
has unhappily been charged that privately 
endowed institutions have been influenced 
in their instruction by the interests of 
their petrons. Let it never be said of 
those publicly supported, that they were 
moved by any other consideration than 
those of truth and its fullest expression.

Just as strongly should the temptation 
to have two or three breeds or varieties 
be put aside. 

This article has no room to go into de- 
tails why mongrel poultry is undesirable 
poultry or why it is wisdom and common 
sense to breed only one variety at a time. 

How to start, with eggs for hatching or 
with grown stock. 

Perhaps your ability to raise chicks is 
an unknown quality 

Anyhow raising chicks is one of the 
more difficult things for the beginner or 
amateur. 

This seems to be especially true of rais- 
ng chicks when there are those of only 
one or two fine sittings of boughten eggs. 

There then remains, the buying of 
stock. All things taken into considera- 
tion, buying breeding stock in the fall 
months, is the more satisfactory. 

If your experience is limited or your 
purse contracted avoid the error made by 
nine-tenths of all beginners with fancy or 
thoroughbred poultry. 

Buying too many birds or putting 
quantity ahead of quality. 



The Question of Breeds. 

[By W. Theo. Wittman.] 
The question of what breed or variety is 
an ever live one, with those new to poultry 
lore. 

I have the question put at me a score of 
ways by many individuals. 

Hence I have pretty thoroughly can 
vassed this question and am now sticking 
to a stereotyped reply. ' 'Breed the variety 
you like best." 

There is profit and pleasure in every 
single one of the many varieties listed in 
the American Standard. 

Its in the Cochins, in the Plymouth 
Rocks, in the Leghorns, in the Polish and 
right through the whole list. 

People succeed best in an avocation in 
which they take genuine pleasure and 
interest and likewise they will suceed best 
with a variety of poultry they especially 
fancy. 

On the other hand there are people 
who wish to engage in poultry keeping 
who have no especial fancy for any one 
variety or breed. 

To these I would say, sensibly choose 
one of the half dozen most popular varie- 
ties. 

Their popularity is built on genuine 
merit and stands for something. 

On the other hand a novice had better 
let the newer varieties alone, no matter 
if they do happen to be the popular favor- 
ites of the hour. 

Compromising indecision by putting off 
the day of starting with pure-bred or 
thoroughbred poultry and substituting 
dunghill or common barn yard stock is 
sheer folly. 
If you cannot decide what variety of 
possible Knowledge comprehended within J pure-bred poultry you like best, or that 
the term "prenatal influences." Will a you cannot afford same, then rather than 
solid red Shorthorn cow bred from solid start with mongrels don't start at all. 
ancestry be inclined to produce a broken j There is no pleasure, no money, no 
colored calf through association with satisfaction with scant stock otherwise 
Holstein cows during pregnancy? If such ' mongrel poultry. 



Swine Breeding. 



W. A. Vandiver gives the following ac- 
count in the Srvine Breeders' Journal of 
his experiment with the Yorkshire cross: 

I have been crossing Poland-China sows 
with pure Large Yorkshire boars for four 
years, and I get more pigs and better ones 
than I ever got before. They are stronger 
and more thrifty growers and fatten on 
less food than any hog 1 ever saw. Now 
take the increased number and the saving 
in feed, and we have much larger profits 
from a given number of sows. This is not 
all. They are hardier and not so liable to 
disease as the native breeds. A few years 
ago I had seventy head of the native hogs 
and forty-six Yorkshire and Poland China 
crosses, and cholera set in among them, 
and I lost the entire herd of natives and 
only four of the cross breeds. I fed the 
forty-two crosses awhile and then sold 
them at 5 cents above the market. Tliey 
brought $460. If the other seventy had 
been crosses and I had saved the same 
per cent I would have had $704 more. 
Now, these are facts, and I have good 
reason to like and recommend the Large 
Yorkshire to my neighbors. I had twenty- 
six crosses that averaged 175 pounds at a 
little less than five months old. Last 
spring twelve sows had 100 pigs and 
saved ninety of them, and they were the 
thriftiest lot I ever saw. 

Don't Overfeed Brood Sows. 



The brood sow is grown to raise her 
kind in future years and not to compete 
with other hog's at a fat stock show, 
says Stockman and Farmer. The two 
kinds of hogrs are grown for different 
ends and are treated differently, and, 
whatever may happen the latter in ils 
unnatural existence, the breeder of the 
brood sow should have care that his 
sows are neither forced into living lard 
barrels nor a mushroom-like develop- 
ment of bone and muscle. The labora- 
tory inside the sow must do duty for 
years, and it is of the greatest impor- 
tance that it be not crippled for useful- 
ness in early life. 

Although corn is a practically uni- 
versal crop, it is maintained that the 
yield can be materially increased 
through improvement of varieties and 
practically in determining the kind 
best adapted to each section. The De- 
partment of Agriculture is studying 
the development and acclimatization 
of at least one superior strain of corn for 
each of the various geographical sections 
of the I 'nited States. It is stated that in 
several sections where this work has been 
in progress two or more years, growers 
have before them an object lesson proving 
that well bred and selected seed will pro- 
duce ai much as sixteen bushels per acre 
more than the seed usually planted.

Sheep Notes. 

The flesh t arryinu power of the modern 
Merino is amply demonstrated in tlie 
show ring these iIhvs. It takes a fat 
sheep, a finished one, to get ttie rihhons. 

Some of the stieep breeders are dis- 
appointed at the world's fair preliminary 
prize list. It makes small appropriations 
to Djrsets, Lincolne, Sutfolks and Tunis 
breeds'. 

KaepinK a ewe a year for her wool and 
lier lamb is a profitable business now, 
when Iwth of her products are a fair price, 
but loss of the lamb often knocks out all 
the profit. 

Sheep men generally have a good word 
for rape and alfalfa. Some losses, how- 
ever, are reported from pesturing them. 
They ehould l>e used carefully, never 
turnii.g on when wet or when the sheep 
are empty 

Spots on Chester White Pigs 

Pedigreed Cht ster Whites when bred 
together alwsjs produce pigs without 
black spots, sais VV. P. Xauiain in 
Breeders Gazette. He speaks of the 
original Chester Whites as bred in 
soutbero Pennsylvania and northern 
Delaware, where the breed originated. 
These pigs have been bred without 
foreign blood for the past eighty years. 
They have taken such a hold on the 
ptoplein that section that at thelea^t 
ooe-halfot the pigs are Chester Whites. 
At a small county fair held in northern 
DdUware the pens were filled entirely 
with Chester Whites, not another breed

REPEATING SHOT GUNS 

A CHANCE FOR A DOUBLE 

A QUESTION often asked about Repeating Shotguns is, "How quick can a fecond shot befired with 
*»■ them?" Shooters that have used Repeaters answer with one accord : "Doubles" are just as easy to 
make with a WINCHESTER REPEATING SHOTGUN as they are with a double barreled 
gun. The third shot that a Winchester Repeater gives often bags a badly crippled bird which otherwise 
would get away. Winchester Repeating Shotguns are made in "Take Down" styles in 12 and 16 gauge.

UITA H. is a dark brown mare who stands nearly 16 hands blgli. and will weigh in racing trim 
about I06<) lbs This mare has had this year a very re'marltable record. She started In the North-

races and only lost four heats during the entire circuit, and has a pacing record of 2:11 M- The mare 
Is five years old and Is excellent on the road. She does not pull or lug, and a lady can drive her 
anywhere. Last spring she trotted a workout mile in •i-.tS'ii and repeated in 2:\6%, after only seven 
weeks' work Her owner has driven herin2:l2!4 in the Los Angeles Driving Club races, she having 
won all of them la which she started. This mare can step two heats below 2:lu 

KLECTRO McKINNEY is a brown stallion foaled in I'JUO, and stands !.■) hands 1 inch in height. 
He trotted a full mile as a two-year-old in 2;31i<. last quarter In 3.1 seconds, and when a Ihree-year- 
old a full mile In 2:2IVi, last quarter in 32 seconds He is perfectly gaited and a grand individual in 
every respect. Weighs about fliiO lbs. ELECTRO Mi KINNEV is bred in the purple, and Is one of 
the bust sons of McKinney alive to day McKinney is undoubtedly the greatest sire for his age. 
living or dead. ELECTRO McKINNEY was not raced last year, being only a three-year-old and 
Dot entered in any stakes it was decided to hold bim over. 

These horses are all r'ght and there is not a thing the matter with them, but my business

and having disposed of all my broodmares at auction, I now offer at private sale 
the stallion 

William Harold 2:i3i-4. 

His sire is the great Sidney 2;Uij, grandsire of the champion trotter of the 
world, Lou Dillon 1:58J, and his dam the great race and broodmare Cricket 2:10 
(dam of four in the list) by Steinway, the greatest son of Strathmore. 

WILLIAM HAROLD is a producer The only two of his get to start are 
that wonderfully fast trotter Janice 2:08J and the pa^er Dan Burns 2:15. 
WILLIAM HAROLD'S services in the stud were very limited up to three years 
ago, as he was raced. His weanlings, yearlings and two-year-olds are very prom- 
ising and have size, good looks and great natural speed, besides being uniform in 
color, nearly all bays. He is a sure foal getter, is in the very best condition, sound 
and healthy, and with ordinary good business management can earn in the stud 
in lil04 the price asked for him.

San Francisco, Saturday, January i6, 1904. 



THE HOLIDAY EDITIONS of the horse papers 
devoted to the harness horse were most excellent 
this year. The Horse Ilericw, The Uorseman, The 
Horse ]VorhI, The Trotter and Pacer and The American 
Ilor.tc Brcciier a\[ published beautifully illustrated and 
most interestingr numbers. The wealth of advertising' 
matter displayed by each and every one is evidence 
that the harness horse business is in a thrifty 
condition. 



THK MANY FLATTERING NOTICES of the 
Christmas edition of the Breeder and Sports- 
M.AN contained in our exchanges and the numerous 
complimentary letters received from our subfcribers 
in regard to the same have been gratefully received 
and read. We foreeo the pleasure of printing them 
as they would fill several pages, but we appreciate 
them just the same and are glad that the edition was 
so well received. We return thanks to each and everj' 
one, editor and subscriber, who has paid us this com- 
pliment, and hope the new year will be most pleasant 
and prosperous to all. 



THE OL'TLOOK for harness racing in California 
this year is good. Pleasanton will open the cir- 
cuit with a good program of twelve races which will 
be printed in the Breeder and Sportsman next 
week. The Breeders Association prints its program 
this weeK and hangs up $13,700 for a four days' meet- 
ing. Vallejo and Napa can both be depended upon to 
give good meetings and Petaluma will doubtless be in 
line. It is reported that Woodland will give one 
of its usual good meetings but if the directors of 
the association there do not see their way clear to 
giving a meeting the Breeders Association can very 
easily be induced to give a meeting there and make 
the circuit complete. A member of the Speed Com- 
mittee of the State Agricultural Society is authority 
(or the statement that the society will ofTer 92000 for 
a slow class trot and $1500 for a slow class pace at the 
State Fair this year, and that the balance of the 
harness program will consist of good purses. Salinas 
and HoUister will both give good meetings and San 
Jose may be in line. The outlook for barness racing 
In California in 1004 is excellent. 



Answers to Correspondents. 

Harvey Boone, Bodie, Cal.— The stallion Decla- 
ration 2128 was lired by Young Jim 2129, he by George 
Wilkes. The dam of Declaration is Lady Bunker by 
Mambrino Patchen .58. She is the dam of Guy 
Wlllces 2:l.".i, El Mahdi 2:2.0j and the prod ucing sire 
William L., sire of Axtell 2:12. Lady Bunker's dam 
was Lady Dunn '.dam of Joe Bunker 2:1!>J) by Ameri- 
can Star 14, next dam the Capt. Roberts mare, 
called an inbred Messenger. 

T. II. L , San Jose. — Molly Drew is standard and 
registered. Her record is 2:27 in the sixth heat of a 
race. She had a trial of 2:2.3. She was sired by 
Winthrop 505, son of the Drew Horse 114, and her 
dam was Fanny Fern (the dam of Balkan 2:1.'> and 
Fred Arnold 2:.'3.')) by Jack Hawkins, son of Boston. 
Molly Drew was a chestnut mare, 10 hands high, with 
a strip in her face and ofT hind ankle and near hind 
pastern white. 



A. Ottinger, the well known ticket broker of this 
city, purchased the Diablo stallion Daedalion 2:11 at 
the Chase sale Thursday evening, his bid being $700. 
He has turned Daedalion over to Ed Lafferty, who 
will take him to Ploaianton next week, and prepare 
him for racing on the California Circuit. Daedalion 
was bred by Geo. H. Fox, of Clements, Cal., who 
consigned him to the sale. He is a magnificent in- 
dividual and has proved himself a game race horse. 
It is believed Be can beat his record this year, and 
certainly Mr. Ottinger secured him at a bargain. 



PALO ALTO'S FINAL SALE. 

Yearlings Are Successfully Sold and Bring 
Excellent Prices. 
Does it pay to raise trotting'colts and sell at auction 
when a farm has established the reputation of pro- 
ducing the goods? The sale of the Palo Alto foals of 
1'.K).1, a bunch of seventeen colts and fillies less than a 
year old, held by Fred H. Chase A Co., live stork 
auctioneers of this city, Thursday night, proves that 
it does. The seventeen head averaged $.T14 each, the 
highest priced one being a black colt by McKlnney 
out of Sweet Rose by Electioneer and he brought $700. 
Mr. John A. Cole of San Bernardino was the pur- 
chaser. 

Never has there been a larger crowd of more repre- 
sentative breeders gathered in San Francifco than 
attended this sale, and there were buyers in the crowd 
from Washington, Oregon and the far south. The 
bidding was lively and the final sale a complete fuc- 
cefs. Superintendent F'rank W. Covey announced 
the breeding of each foal as It was led Into the ring, 
and bids would come before he could complete the 
remarks, so eager were the buyers. There were at 
least fifty persons who came prepared to pay from 
$1.50 to $200 for a colt or filly that had to go away 
disappointed. 

After the Palo Alto horses were sold a number of 
colts, fillies and aged horses consigned by different 
Individuals were disposed of at fair prices. C. A. 
Durfee, who with a friend owned four McKinneys in 
partnership consigned them to this sale, but they 
went for very low figures. Strange as it may seem 
the two mares by McKinney, out of the great brood- 
mare Stemwinder, dam of Directum 2:0,51, were about 
the least attractive of the get of McKinney that were 
ever led into a salesring. They were small, and their 
individuality not such as would attract breeders. As 
far as looks were concerned, they showed that the 
'"nick" had not been a successful one. It is more than 
probable, however, that when bred to good stalliocs 
they will both produce speed of a high order. The 
full list of the horses sold is given below:

That splendid broodmare Belle Mt^dium, dam of 
Starn B 2:11 J and owned by Tuttle Bros, of Rocklin, 
was found dead in her box stall one morning this week. 
She was bred by the late W. T. Withers at Fairlawn 
Stock Farm in Kentucky and was foaled in 18H3, bein^f 
twenty-one years old at the time of her death Last 
year she was not in good condition and lost her foal 
by Nutwood Wilkes. She was then bred to .Mendo- 
cino and would have foaled next month. Her death 
is not only a groat Iobh to Tuttle Brop., but to the 
breeding Interests of the State. She was by Happy 
Medium, dam Argonta by Almont Lightning, gran- 
dam Mary Adams by Mambrino F'atchen.

[January 16, 1904 



JOTTINGS. m 



THK CLAIM has been often made by observing 
horeemen in California that while the get of 
Diablo 2:09i are generally fast two and three year 
olds they will be better race horses if they are waited 
on until they have matured. It is argued that their 
natural speed is so great in colthopd that the majority 
of trainers -vill speed them too much and as a con- 
sequence put them on the shelf before they have 
reached maturity. There have been many instances 
during the past few years to support this idea, and 
the fact that numerous green aged horses by Diablo 
are just now being developed in California and show- 
ing wonderful speed is further evidence of its cor- 
rectness. One of the best I have seen for a long time 
time is a bay geldinp six 5 ears old by Diablo that is 
owned by Walter Trefry and is being worked by him 
at Pleasanton. This gelding was a trotter up to five 
or six years ago, but never showed speed enough to 
hurt him. Walter came to the conclusion that pacing 
is his natural gait and put the hopples on him. After 
four weeks, during which he was worked very 
moderately the gelding stepped a mile in 2:14] last 
Saturday, and did it so handily that only those hold- 
ing watches suspected be was going that fast. I saw 
the horse flash past the wire and heard one of the 
numerous "rail riders'' remark as he snapped his 
watch back that the mile was in 2:14',, and went down 
to the stall to see how the gelding stood it. He did 
not look as if he had been a mile better than three 
minutes and the breath from his nostrils would as 
the saying is "hardly blow out a candle. " A better 
looking horse is not to be seen at the Pleasanton 
track. He has a very neat bony head, nicely turned 
body, and smooth round hips. His feet and legs are 
just about perfection. He Is a bright bay, stands, I 
should judge, about 1.").2 and will weigh, probably, a 
thousand pounds. He looks to me like a 2:05 pacer 
and one that will go without the straps when he is 
ready to race. He is bred all right on his dam's side 
as she is the Palo Alto bred mare May by thorough- 
bred Wildidle, second dam the famous mare May- 
flower 2:30J by St. Clair. May is the dam of Wildmay 
2:30, that produced L. 96 2:16J. 



would not surprise me if she trotted in 2:05 when she 
has more age. Sbeis thesort that has so much speed 
she hardly knows what to do with it, and a year 
or two of quiet road work would doubtless calm her 
down so that she would be reliable. It is said that 
she is a well behaved roadster now, but she seems 
very excitable on the track. Henry Sanders is im- 
proving her very much, however, and may make a 
race mare out of her this year. If she gets to going 
steadily in company she will be a hard one for the 
free for all horses to beat as she is game as a pebble. 



When the late Dr. Hicks came to California from 
Iowa he brought with him a mare called Flash by 
Kgmont and out of Lightfoot by Flaxtall. In 1892 
Plash went to Oak wood Park Stock Farm and became 
a member of the broodmare ranks there. She was 
bred to Creole and produced the fast mare Javelin 
2:08]. She was then mated with Charles Derby every 
year and gave to the turf Flare Up 2:14 and Sallii' 
Derby 2:19|. While she was owned by Dr. Hicks she 
had produced Walker 2:23J, so she has four in the 
list. A few months ago Ben Chaboya sold to Mr. J. 
D. Springer of Pleasanton a big pacer by Charles 
Derby out of this mare Flash, and one day this week 
Mr. Springer worked him a half in 1:00J. This geld- 
ing is a large horse six years old and is a great pros- 
pect for the slow classes this year, as he is eligible to 
all races, having no record. 



Barney Simpson, who Is training quite a string of 
horses at Pleasanton, headed by the very fast and 
promising green pacer Arner, own brother to Diablo 
2:09}, called my attention to the fact, which I had 
overlooked, that old Bertha has a new one in the list 
this year, her three-year-old Owyho by Owyhee 2:11 
having taken a three-year-old 
pacing record of 2:22} in the East 
this year. Owyho Is the hand- 
some chestnut colt that Ed Mills 
and Henry Sanders bought at the 
Oakwood Park Farm last spring 
and consigned to the Blue Ribbon 
sale at Cleveland, where he was 
purchased by William McFarland 
of Pdnas. ylvac ia forSlOlO. Owyho 
is the first performer for Owyhee, 
who was sold to Australian parties 
two years ago, and is the sixth 
standard performer for Bertha. 
The daughter of Alcantara is now 
ihe dam of six with records of 
2:22} or better, as follows: Diablo 
2:09}, Elf 2:12^, Ed Lafferty 2:16*, 
Damonlo 2:11}, Don Derby ''.:04i 
and Owyho 2:22}. She has also 
produced Jar EfT Bee that took a 
yearling record of 2:26.1. Arner, 
her foal of 1898, will be raced this 
year and will go Into the 2:15 list 
without much trouble. Bertha 
has established a wonderful family 
of pacers, and there now seems to be great prospects 
of her son Diablo adding to his reputation by siring 
some very fast trotters, there being several green 
ones by blm now In training In California that are 
showing 2:10 speed at the diagonal gait. 



Over at Corte Madera In Marin county, a few miles 
across the bay from San Francisco, the little chestnut 
gelding Little Albert 2:10, now twenty years old. Is 
taking his easa In apastureand enjoying the declining 
years of a good old age. He is still owned by Mr. W. 
B. Bradbury, the capitalist of this city, who says that 
the son of Albert W., having been good to him, will 
never want for anything during the rest of his days. 
It was in the year 1891, when Little Albert was seven 
years old, that he made his memorable campaign on 
the Grand Circuit and won something over twenty 
thousand dollars for Mr. Bradbury. He started nine 
times that year, winning six races and being second 
in the other three. One of the races in which he got 
second money was the $10,000 stake for the 2:20 class, 
in which nine heats were trotted and was finally won 
by Mambrlno King's daughter Nightingale. Little 
Albert won the fifth and the seventh beats and made 
a dead heat with the mare in the fourth. He closed 
the year with a mark of 2:17}. The following year he 
won four races in the free for all class on the Grand 
Circuit and reduced his record to 2:10}. In 1893, he 
was campaigned again in the big ring and took his 
record at Cleveland where he won the free for all 
purse of $2000 and defeated Nightingale, Walter E., 
Lord Clinton, Rylacd T. and others in a hard fought 




at the same time advising that he sell her to the first 
sucker he could find. Now Jeems is a pretty good off 
hand speaker whenever he wants to let loose his 
supply of oratory, but he took all the chaffing and 
kept silent. Last week, on Wednesday, he took 
Monica out while the rail was occupied with all the 
"dockers" and drove her a mile in 2:20} very easily. 
Some of the onlookers remarked that she would 
probably never be seen on the track agalr after that, 
and just to show them that the old mare is in good 
condition, James was out with her again by the time 
the regulation 20 minutes was up and drove her a 
repeat mile in 2:19. Monica acted as though she 
liked the game, and Thompson is pretty sure he will 
beat her record with her by the first of March. 



Mention has been made in this department hereto- 
fore of a six-year-old gelding by Diablo that John 
Gordon owns and has In training at the San Jose 
track. He Is a very promising trotter and looks like 
a 2:10 prospect according to those who have seen him, 
and he was never even broke until he was five years 
old. Henry Sanders has In his string at the present 
time a four-year-old mare by Diablo, owned by Mr. R. 
P. M. Greeley of Oakland, that has two minute speed 
at the trot. She was worked some as a three-year-old 
and showed remarkably well, but has that highly 
nervous temperament that keeps many a youngster 
from doing its best. If nothing happens this mare It 



Will Again Stand at Pleasanton. 

Stam B. 2:11.1, that was one of the greatest colt 
trotters ever seen on the Pacific Coast, taking a trot- 
ting record of 2:15A as a three-year-old and reducing 
It the next year In his four-year-old form to2:llJ, 
will again make a season at Pleasanton under the 
management of Samuel Gamble. No stallion in Cali- 
fornia has been more talked about during the past few 
months than this son of Stamboul 2:07^, and the fact 
every foal he has sired that has been trained has 
shown race horse speed has caused breeders to con- 
clude that Sam Gamble was not far wrong when he 
took the horse two years ago and predicted that he 
would be a great sire. 

On a recent trip through the country Mr. Gamble 
made Investigation to ascertain bow many foals 
Stam B. has that are older than yearlings, and after 
energetic research he could find but twenty-eight all 
told, barring the foals of 1903. The Tuttle Brothers 
of Rocklin, owners of Stam B., have five, M. C. 
Delano one, Mr. Whitney of Rocklin one, Mr. Ryder 
of Loomis three. Dr. Whitter of Walnut Grove one, 
Mr. Sharon of Gait one, Mr. Hodges of Los Angeles 
one, Geo. T. Beckers two, Mr. Orr of Gait one, Mr. 
Springer of Pleasanton one, E. A. Gammon one, J. 
H. Dresser of Isleton one, Mr. Matthews one. Judge 
P. J. Shields one, J. M. Madison one, parties In Rock- 
lin, San Francisco and Stockton one each, Mrs. Cal- 
lendine of Sacramento one. The following of his get 
have started: Swift B., three-year-old record 2:16}, 
winner of three races and second money in both the 
Occident and Stanford Stakes of 1903; The Jester, 
winner of third money In Occident Stake of 1903; 
Rosalind, that started In three races at Sacramento 
as a three-year-old in 1902 and won two second and 
one third money, finishing close up to the winner of a 
heat In 2:18. These are all the foals by Stam B. that 
Mr. Gamble has been able to account for after an ex- 
tended search. The reason for the limited number of 
his foals is that Stam B. was in training up to VMO, 
made but very short seasons in the stud and was not 
largely patronized. 

Stam B. Is still a young horse, having been foakd 
in 1892. He was bred to about fifty choice mares last 
season, a few more than he served the year before 
All horsemen who saw him when the late Thos. 
Keating had him know that Stam B. possessed 2:05 
speed. As a race horse his reputation is national. 
His ancestors have proven to be successful progenitors 
of world's champions both on the tracks and In the 
show rings. 

Stam B.'s blood lines are so well known that it is 
only necessary to say that he is by the great Stam- 
boul out of Belle Medium 2:20 by Happy Medium, 
grandslre of the dam of Lou Dillon 1:581, second dam 
by Almont Lightning, sire of the dam of Zombro 
2:11, etc. 

Stam B. will make the season of 1904 at Pleasanton 
at the low fee of $40. On June 1st he will leave there 
for Salem, Oregon, at the request of a number of 
owners of high class mares who reside In that vicinity. 
Those who send their mares to Stam B. this season 
will be wise. He Is one of the coming great sires. 



OWYHO (3) 3:33 1-4 

race of five heats. He started In the memorable 
Columbian free for all at Chicago that year but was 
not in the money at the end of the race which con- 
tinued for three days. After his racing days were 
over, Mr. Bradbury used him as a road horse, and up 
to the time he quit driving him, a year ago, few 
horses could outbrush the little fellow on the road. 
It Is a pleasure to know that he Is now living a life of 
ease and luxury In his old days and that his owner 
fully appreciates the fact that the little horse Is 
entitled to all the good things he gets. 



James Thompson turned a trick on the wise ones at 
the Pleasanton track last week. He attended a sale 
in San Francisco a few weeks ago and bought the 
mare Monica 2:15 by McKlnney. When he reached 
Pleasanton with her the boys all gave him the laugh, 
telling him that Monica was a has been and would 
never be able to pace a mile much better than 2:30, 



Grand Circuit Dates. 



The Board of Stewards of the Grand Circuit will 
meet at Cleveland, Ohio, January 20th, to arrange 
dates for the various tracks of that compact for next 
year. Grosse Polnte will open the circuit as usual, 
starting on the third Monday In July. Just how the 
other tracks will follow is a matter that can not be 
told until the meeting. Last season there was some 
dissatisfaction with the dates awarded, and some 
shifts were made In the order of the meetings. To 
avoid this ociurrlng again great care will be taken in 
arranging the dates so as to accommodate all the 
tracks as well as possible. It is rumored that Secre- 
tary J. B. Pettit of the Board of Stewards will resign. 
Mr. Pettit is also secretary of the Detroit Driving 
Club. ^

[January 16, 1904 



Joseph Hubinger, of New Haven, Conn., has com- 
menced a suit for $30,000 damages to his string of 
trotters and pacei'S by the wreck near St. Louis last 
summer. It will be remembered that the Texas 
reinsman W. O. Foote, who was in charge of Mr. 
Hubinger's horses, was also severely injured in tbat 
accident. Mr. P^oote will bring a separate action for 
damages. 

Broodmares are bringing good prices once more. 
Expressive 2:12\ sold for $1700 at the Old Glory sale 
in December last, and now the bay mare Quoddy Girl 
2:165 has been sold by J. L. Tarlton of Lexington, 
Kentucky, to D. J. McDonald of Aurora, Illinois, for 
$1500. She is safe in foal to Larabie the Great aicd 
will be bred back to that horse before being shipped 
to her new owner. 

Geo. T. Beckers, owner of the great young stallion 
Zombro 2:11 by McKinney, came up from Los Angeles 
on a flying trip this week ana gave this olHce a call. 
Mr. Beckers has about decided that he will take Zom- 
bro to Cleveland, Ohio, about May Ist this year, as 
he intends taking a few of his colts over to the Blue 
Ribbon sale to be held there that month. Zombro's 
season at Los Angeles will, therefore, end May 1st. 

Last week's Trotter and Pacer said: Monte Carlo 
and Nora McKinney are at Matt Dwyer's stable in 
charge of Johnny McQuaig. Mr. Ives is highly elated 
with Monte Carlo, and says he is one of the nicest 
road horses he ever saw or heard of. He was jogged 
on the snow last Sunday by his trainer, who says he 
is one of the finest snow horses that ever stepped on 
the path. Nora McKinney is good on the snow, but 
not as well put up for it as the fast California gelding. 



The Percheron is the farmers' horse and good stal- 
lions of this breed will be well patronized this year, 
by the farmers of California, as there is a big shorts 
age in the supply of draft horses and prices are high- 
Mr. J. A. Beall, of Laton, Fresno county, advertises 



Another star performer of the season of 1903, Jsy 
McGregor 2:08, goes to a Gotham owner. C. L. Mc- 
ClaiB, a New York broker, has purchastd of W. 1^. 
Spears his half interest in Jay McGregor at the re- 
ported price of $12,500. Mr. McClain now owns the 
horse entire. It is said the horse will remain in Scott 
Hudson's hands at Lexington, and will be driven by 
the auburn haired reinsman in the Grand Circuit this 
year. 

Mr. W. H. Houghton of Marion, Ohio, President 
of the McMurray Sulky Company, is in California for 
a few weeks with his family on a pleasure jaunt. Mr. 
W. J. Kenney, of the Kenney Manufacturing Com- 
pany of this city, has been showing Mr Houghton 
around during his stay here, and they visited Pleas- 
anton one day this week. Mr. Houghton found tbat 
the McMurray sulky is deservedly popular with Cali- 
fornia trainers, and that the company has in Mr. 
Kenney an active and enterprising agent for this 
Coast. 

A recount of the winnings of the Keene stable of 
Thoroughbreds in this country and England shows a 
total of $117,000. Race horses were sold in Britain 
from this stable for $g0,000. In this country horfes 
in training and yearlings were sold at auction for 
$45,000 and $50,000 worth was sold from the Castlelun 
Stud in New York, making a grand total of $292. 000 
as the gross return for 1903. Carrying the recount 
still farther the Mornivg Telegrajih states that at 
Brookdale the Keenes have 32 yearlings worth $192,- 
000, at Castleton 50 yearlings worth $100,000 and in 
addition there are on *,he 'arm named 110 broodmares 
of the most fashionable blond and the stallions Com 
mando, Voter, Ben Brush, Kingston and Horoerope, 
togeth'er with the broad acres of Castleton, making 
the investment altogether about $1,000,000 on which 
a return of $292,000 is very large even if in gross. 




six Percheron stallions for sale. Three are black 
and three dapple grays. Four are registered horses, 
the other two have fifteen-sixteenths of pure blood. 
Read the advertisement and correspond with Mr. 
Beall in regard to prices. 



Members of the Gentlemen's Riding and Driving 
Club of Denver, Col., held their annual parade Dec. 
19th to commemorate the fact that at that date the 
club had the largest membership of any club in the 
country. Over 130 vehicles of all sorts from a bike 
sulky to a break were in line. A feature of the pro- 
cession was the line of record horses, led by W. W. 
P. 2:051. Carbonate 2:09 came next and then Silver 
Sign 2:10|, Daisy Field 2:08J and others of that sort. 
A set of "moving pictures" was made of the proces- 
sion as it moved up Grant avenue, the intention being 
to use the films in advertising Denver in other cities. 



Al McDonald is handling a black gelding by Zom- 
bro 2:11 at Pleasanton that is one of the best gaited 
youngsters ever seen at the famous track. The 
gelding will be four-years-old this spring. He is out 
of a mare by Gen. Benton and is a full brother to 
Lord Kitchener 2:26. Peter Zombro, they call him, 
and although he worked a mile in 2:19,1 at Los Angeles 
last year as a three-year-old, he is expected to trot 
much faster than that this year. Peter Zombro does 
not wear a boot of any kind, is a free open gaited 
horse and should make a very fast trotter. He is 
owned by Mr. M. A. Murphy of this city. 



One of the handsomest three year-olds in California 
is Elden Bells by Monbells, dam Elden 2:19J, (dam 
of Eleata 2:08*) by Nephew, 
second dam Eleanor by Elec- 
tioneer, third dam Sallie 
Gardner, thoroughbred mare 
by Vandal. Elden Bells is 
owned by Col. J. C. Kirk- 
patrick, manager of the 
Palace Hotel in this city, 
who has been driving him on 
the Park roads this winter, 
and finds him a most agree- 
able road horse. The accom- 
panying photograph, taken 
a few days since, is a good 
likeness of the colt and a 
pretty fair one of his owner. 
There is no more enthusiastic 
road driver than Col. Kirk- 
patrick, and about the only 
days he misses are when it is 
raining or the days he goes 
to Pleasanton, where he is 
now building a capacious 
bungalow close to the famous 
training track there. This 
bungalow is nearing com- 
pletion and when finished 
will be a model country resi- 
dence. Col. Kirkpatrick is a very active business 
man, managing with great success the immense 
Sharon Estate, besides being one of San Francisco's 
Harbor Commissioners and filling many other 
positions of trust. He is a director of the P. "C. T. H. 
B. A. and a member of the Board of Appeals of the 
National Trotting Association. He finds his best 
relaxation from business in driving good harness 
horses, and as a reinsman behind a fast trotter has 
few superiors. 

Harry Fancher, of New York, is buying consider- 
able speed for the European market, and it seems the 
huskyheaded foreigners are now taking kindly to 
pacers. Last Saturday, Mr. Fancher shipped four- 
teen head to London to one man. These he had pur- 
chased on an order. They were mostly pacers with 
records ranging from 2:08i to 2:23|, and the larger 
percen-tage were geldings. On Monday, January 4th, 
Mr. Fancher received a letter from Emanuel Peter- 
sen of Copenhagen, Denmark, requesting him to pur- 
chase a trotting stallion for the Danish Trotting Asso- 
ciation. Mr. Petersen's letter stated that he wished 
a horse 17 hands tall, black or brown in color, with 
no defects in body or limb, possessed with an even 
temper, must be standard bred, with a record of 2:30 
or better, and possessed with style and action of 
superior quality. Mr. Fancher will hardly be able to 
find a 17 band trotting bred stallion, to fill his order. 
Perhaps some of our readers can help him with one. 



II Notes and News, m 

The program for the Breeders meeting is printed 
on another page. 

Ploasanton'a program for the July meeting will be 
out next week. 



Nutwood 2:18i is the leading sire of dams of new 
standard performers for 1903, eleven trotters and two 
pacers 

John H. Downey ad vertises that he is located at 
Alameda Race Track and will take horses to train for 
tracic and road. 



Frank Doble, a brother to Budd and Charles, will 
train for Warren F Daniel of Franklin, N. H., the 
coming season. 

The Prince of Orange 2:06^, Mr. Billings' last pur- 
chase, has been shipped to Memphis and will be 
trained by Millard Sanders. 



Consuella S. 2:12* by Directum is showing all her 
old time speed at Pleasanton. One day last week the 
was permitted to step a half and did it in 1:04^. 



Dr. Book 2:10 by McKinney, has been bought by D. 
G. McDonald of Pittsburg, Pa., for matinee and road 
use. The doctor is a great horse in these classes as 
well as on the track, and is a hard proposition to 
beat. 



Lord Russell, 23 years old, sire of Kremlin 2:07^, 
and full brother to Maud S. 2:08^, is owned by a 
prominent business man of Newark, Ohio. He does a 
good business in the stud and still looks strong and 
full of vital energy. 

The Sacramento Driving Club has set a date twice 
within the last four weeks on which to hold a matinee 
but bad weather has caused a postponementeach time. 
The third attempt will be made to-morrow at Agri- 
cultural Park in the capital city. 



It was announced in Pleasanton last week that 
Monroe Salisbury had leased theMerriwa Stock Farm 
(formerly the Valensin farm) and will keep the East 
View Farm horses that are not in actual training or 
are in need of turning out, at that place. 



Ed Parker, who broke and handled Rey Direct 2:10 
and his get so successfully, is now in the employ of 
Mr. J. B.Iverson of Salinas, and expects to take a 
string of seven trotters and pacers from the Iverson 
farm to Pleasanton about February 1st. 



Waldstein 2:22J, that still holds the champion five 
mile trotting stallion record, is now at Pleasanton, 
having been shipped there recently by Mr. M. J. 
Zahner of Rohnerville, Eureka. Waldstein will prob- 
ably make the season of 1904 at Pleasanton. 



Kinney Lou 2:07J, will get his limit of mares before 
his season ends on May 1st. Budd Doble is getting 
letters from all parts of California in regard to his 
horse and several mares have already been booked. 
Kinney Lou will be at the San Jose track February Ist. 



Directors of the Napa Agricultural Society will 
meet the latter part of this month, when the propo- 
sition of holding a race meeting this year will be con- 
sidered. Secretary Bell writes that in his opinion 
the prospects for a meeting at Napa and a successful 
circuit in California are excellent. 



In the tables of "best on records," compiled annu- 
ally by statisticians, one notably prominent mile has 
never been given space. During C. W. Mark's owner- 
ship of Joe Patchen, he, a simon pure amateur, drove 
the famous campaigner and a sire a best-on-record- 
race heat against Chehalis over at Portland, Me., — 
2:01i. 

A firm of tanners and carriers suggests that as a 
rule farmers and horsedoalers are not aware of the 
fact that horsehides, whether taken off slaughtered 
horses or those which have died by disease or 
perished from other causes, have a value in the mar- 
ket. Fair sized horse hides free of cutholesand other 
blemishes are now bringing from $3 to $3 25 in the 
market 

One of the best lookers in the East View Farm 
string at Pleasanton is the stallion Direct View 2:14} 
by Direct, dam by Mansfield, son of Hambletonian 10. 
He jogged a mile in 2:25 the other day and stepped 
the last quarter in 35 seconds and last eighth in 16 
seconds. He is a square trotter and made his record 
last year. 

An arrangement has been reached between the 
Gentlemen's Driving Club and the Driving Park Co. 
of Cleveland, O , whereby the long homestretch of 
he famous Glenville course will be maintained all 
winter a glary sheet of ice and either bicycle sulkies 
ar sleighs may be used on it for brushing. The jog- 
ging back to the head of the stretch will be done on 
the inner track. 

An eastern exchange says: Ed Bass may race the 
elegantly bred stallion Almaboul by Stamboul 2:07i 
from old Alma Mater the dam of Alcantara, Alcyone 
and so. many others. His owner, A. N. Kingsley, 
Ashuelot, N. H., contemplates mating the great 
broodmare Rosemont by Piedmont, dam Beautiful 
Bells, to him after she foals. Rosemont was one of 
the choicest at Palo Alto, and to Mendocino to whom 
she is now in foal should produce a rare performer. 



Lady Yeiser by Garrard Chief 2253 is one of the 
great brood mares of which little has been written in 
the turf journals. She is credited with eight stand- 
ard performers by the last Year Book and put two 
new ones in the list in 1903, giving her ten with stand- 
ard records. Of these six are trotters with records 
from 2:28J to 2:29J, and four are pacers with records 
from 2:05J to 2:17^ Her son, Don Pizarro 2:14|, is 
the sire of sixteen in the list, of which six have rec- 
ords below 2:15, and her daughters have produced 
five. Garrard Chief, the sire of Lady Y'eifer, was by 
Mambrino Chief. Her dam was Jewell by Vermont 
104, a grandson of Black Hawk 5. There are several 
crosses of running blood in Lady Y'eiser's pedigree. 

There are 97 entries in the Occident Stake of 1900, 
entries for which closed January 2d. The list was 
received just before this issue of the Breeder and 
Sportsman went to press and too late for publica- 
tion. It will appear next week. 



Says Sports of the Times: "Almont Jr. is back again 
at Village Farm, after several years absence and in 
spite of his years looks virile. Almont Jr. will be 32 
years old next spring, but he looks 15 years younger. 
He is still vigorous, and Superintendent Bradburn 
has decided to mate with him next spring some of the 
best of the young broodmares owned at Village Farm. 
Almont Jr. has sired more fast, handsome and perfect 
mannered road horses than any other stallion that 
ever stood in Western New Y'ork, and considering 
that when he was the premier sire at Village Farm 
the broodmares there were vastly inferior in breeding 
to those of the present day, his showing as a sire is 
little less than wonderful. He was displaced by Mam- 
brino King before he had been given an opportunity 
to leave any sons out of real great mares, and it is to 
be hoped that from his services next spring some colts 
may come that will develop into horses of the individ- 
uality and breeding that will make them desirable 
horses to use in the stud and thus save from dying 
out a line of the Almont family that has some most 
valuable qualifications."

PACIFIC BREEDERS FUTURITIES. 



Payments Made January 2d on Stakes to be 
Decided This Year. 

There will be four contests at the meeting of the 
Pacific Coast Trotting Horse Breeders Association to 
be held this year, two of which will be for two year 
olds and two for three year olds entered in the 
Futurities. 

Of the 122 colts and fillies on which payments were 
made as two year olds January 2, 1903, ")4 had pay- 
ment made on them as three year olds January 2d 
this year. This means that fifty-four colts and fillies 
have been or will be put in training for the two 
divisions of the stake that are given to three year 
olds. The trotters get $2000, and the pacers $1000 to 
contest for. The nominator of the dam of the win- 
ner in either event will get $200, and the owner of the 
stallion that sires either winner will be paid $100 out 
of the stake. It will not be possible to know just how 
the three year olds will be divided as to their gaits 
until the starting payments for the races are made 
ten days before the meeting opens. Of the ITti colts 
and fillies foals of U)02, on which payment was made 
as yearlings January 2, 11)03, more than three-fourths, 
or 141 to give the e.vact number, had fourth payment 
made on them as two year olds January 2, 1904, and 
are now eligible to the two year old c i visions of that 
stake to be decided this year. The two year old 
trotters will compete for $1250, and the two year old 
pacers for $750. As in the three year old events, the 
nominator of the dam of the winner of either race 
will be paid $200 out of the stake. The complete list 
of foals on which payments have been made and that 
are eligible to these two stakes are as follows: 

stake No. 1, •6000, for Hares Bred In 1000.

its eleventb annual naeeting Jannary 9th at the resi- 
dence of the president, H. R. Taylor, 1375 Regent 
streeli, Alameda. There was a large attendance of 
students of ornithology from Stanford and Berkeley 
uoiversities, Oakland, San Francisco and other points. 
The club is the most active State organization for the 
study of the habits of birds in the Union, and now 
has a memberbhip of over two hundred, scattered 
throughout California, with some members in Ore- 
gon, Washington, Nevada and Utah. Much scientific 
research has been accomplished by members of the 
club, and important contributions to science are pub- 
lished in pamphlet form for circulation among 
museums and students of the country, as well as in 
the club magazine, the Condor, issued at Stanford 
University for the society by Walter K. Fisher, the 
editor, who is a son of Dr. A. K. Fisher of the United 
States Department of Agriculture. 

At the meeting M. P. Anderson gave a talk on "A 
Bird Island in Cook's Inlet, Alaska." Professor Otto 
Emerson of Haywards presented a valuable paper on 
the subject, "The Feet and Bills of Birds in Relation 
to Their Food Habits." 

Officers were elected to serve ff-r the ensuing year 
as follows: President, Henry Reed Taylor; first vice- 
president, R. B. Moran of San Luis Obispo; second 
vice-president. Earl Mulliken of Berkeley; secretary, 
Charles S. Thompson of Stanford Qniversity; treas- 
urer, .Joseph Grinnell, Pasadena. Walter K. Fisher 
was appointed editor of the club's official organ, the 
Condor. Following the business session the club 
members enjoyed a banquet. 

The value of birds as insect destroyers is gradually 
dawning on the general public and it is to be hoped 
that ere long the useful birds — and they comprise 95 
per cent of the feathered denizens of field and wood- 
land — will have the same protection that has been 
accorded game birds. 

Statistics gathered in every State of the Union 
show conclusively the wisdom of protecting the birds. 
Much has been published and argued against the 
birds for their destructiveness in the orchard and 
grain field. When the whole evidence gathered has 
been boiled down and weighed in the balance it has 
been clearly proven that in a large majority of in- 
stances the birds have a big allowance coming on the 
CI edit side of the ledger. 

The New York Department of Agriculture was 
recently Informed that, in some sections of the state, 
people were killing wild birds because of damage done 
by them to early fruit. That is not only against the 
laws of the state, but against the best interejts of all 
who try to produce anything from the soil — "farmers, 
orchardists, gardeners and all." Injurious insects 
are increasing very rapidly all over that state. The 
worst forms have been imported, and there is good 
reason to fear further introduction of these de- 
structive pests, as they are at our borders. The 
brown-tail and gypsy moths are liable to show up 
there at any time. The latter has cost Massachusetts 
over $1,000,000 so far to keep it under subjection. 
This suggests the desirability of using every possible 
means to check their depredations. 

Much has been said and written on the proper use 
of poison sprays; but the acreage now covered by the 
spray-pump is very small in comparison to the culti- 
vated acres of that state, and is confined almost wholly 
to a part of the commercial orchards and the potato 
fields; while the great acreage of farming lands lies 
exposed to the attacks of seriously injurious insects, 
working untold damage, unmolested, except by the 
natural enemies of the bugs and beetles and their 
larvae. 

Of animal life, ineects outnumber, by far, all other 
species. Over 500,000 forms (Kingsley) are known, 
and the individuals of some of these species number 
many millions. Were it not for the natural checks 
on the wonderful reproductive power of insects, no 
living plant could mature, and utter desolation would 
result. To those most familiar with insects it is a 
daily wonder that they are not many times more de- 
structive than they are, and that their damage is so 
often local and not general. 

A conservative estimate of the loss to the farmers 
of the state of New York caused by insects would be 
10 per cent of their entire crops. Prof. Webster, the 
state entomologist of Ohio, places the loss in that 
state at 20 per cent. It has been recently stated that 
"up to June 1, 1900, 5,240,000 acres of winter wheat in 
the United States was abandoned and plowed, or cut 
for forage, as the result of the ravages of worms, bugs 
and flies." Let estimates be what they may, the 
losses are large, and it is necessary to look for every 
possible remedy. 

Investigation of the food supply of birds has in 
recent years been carried on by the United States 
government and by many careful observers in several 
States, and yet the work is far from complete; but 
enough has been ascertained to prove that our wild 
birds are very Important factors in insect control. 

The food of all land birds consists of seeds, buds 
and animal matter, especially the latter, and most 
species of birds consume a large quantity of the larva' 
of insects, an enormous amount at time of feeding 
their young Many of the Insectivorous birds have 
two broods a year, and both broodscome at theseason 
when Insect larvrc are most abundant. Many of the 
more injurious insects pass most of the year in the 
egg state, and some birds feed very largely on the 
eggs. 

Birds are intensely active. They are comparatively 



light, and hs ve a marvelous muscular system, which 
must be sustained by an abundance of animal food. 
Some birds will consume in twenty-four hours a quan- 
tity of food equal to their own weight, a fact not 
paralleled by any other warm blooded animal. They 
have strong and very active digestive organs, and the 
number of insects consumed and destroyed by them 
is very great. As a rule, birds are of delicate organi- 
zation, nervous and timid; they have numerous 
enemies, among which are other birds, reptiles, cats, 
the small boy and the "sportsman" (?). 

When there is abundant food, then there will be 
found creatures seeking that food, but with birds 
other matters than a food supply are to beconsidered. 
Special attention should be given to the protection of 
wild birds. Their nesting places must be kept quiet, 
trees should be reserved for their use, food should be 
given them in inclement weather, and destruction of 
birds and their nests should be stopped. 

The clearing of forests and the removal of under- 
growth, and especially the scarcity of evergreen trees, 
have taken away the favorite resting places of desir- 
able birds. They need the protection of dense trees 
for many weeks each summer, in which to build sheir 
nests, hatch their eggs and feed their helpless young, 
and always need them to escape pursuit. 

In the East firs, pines and spruces afford desirable 
nesting places for many species of beneficial birds, 
especially crow-black birds. Small bird-houses on 
poles, or even two-inch holes bored into barns or out- 
houses, back of which small boxes are placed, will 
supply a home for wrens and other species. 

Some of the most injurious insect pests, says a New 
York writer, we have are the spring caterpillars of 
the elm and willow, the tent caterpillars, gipsy moth, 
tussock moth, etc., and owing to their spines or hairs 
it would seem that they would not be very attractive 
food for birds; but recent investigation shows that 
great numbers are eaten by them. At times they will 
swallow an entire insect, and at others only a portion, 
but always a vital part. 

Recent reports on the food habits of birds show 
many Interesting facts. Even birds that have been 
condemned because they eat fruit or grain are known 
to feed most of the year on insects and noxious seeds, 
and if they lived wholly on fruit during the fruit sea- 
son (which they do not) they would be on the whole 
of value. 

The United States authorities at Washington have 
dissected nearly 15,000 birds and recorded the 
stomach contents, and others have done work along 
similar lines. 

The following notes have been made from various 
sources and may prove interesting: 

Forty-seven species of birds feed on hairy cater- 
pillars. Thirty-two species feed on tent caterpillars. 
Crows eat half a pound of insects per day. A pair of 
chipping sparrows had a nest containing three young; 
in one day they made two hundred visits to the nest, 
bringing food nearly every time. One-half the winter 
food of chicadees — black-capped titmouse — was in- 
sect, largely eggs, and the stomachs each contained 
300 to 450 eggs of canker worm. In Massachusetts 38 
species of birds feed on gypsy moth. Blacibirds, 
during breeding season, live mostly on insects. 
Damage by crows is confined to a short corn season, 
but the remainder of the y«ar they consume enormous 
numbers of insects. Ninety-nine per cent of the 
stomach contents of thirty meadow larks was cater- 
pillars, grasshoppers and beetles, especially snapping 
beetles, so destructive in grasslands. Of two hundred 
speciesof birds listed in West Virginia, fifty-one feed 
mostly on insects. 

The following record will show the result of the ex- 
amination of the stomachs of a few Eastern birds: 

Forty-six black-billed cuckoos contained 906 cater- 
pillars, 44 beetles, 96 grasshoppers, 100 sawflies, 30 
stink-bugs, 15 spiders, etc. One stomach contained 
100 sawflies. One hundred and nine yellow-billed 
cuckoos contained 1865 caterpillars, 93 beetles, 242 
grasshoppers, 67 sawflies, 69 bugs, 6 flies and 80 
spiders One stomach contained 250 teut caterpillars, 
and another 217 fall webworms. Two-thirds to three- 
fourths of the food of downy and hairy woodpeckers 
consists of insects. Two flickers contained over 3000 
ants each. Of 281 stomachs of kingbirds, 14 only con- 
tained bees, and 90 per cent of their food was of 
insects. Of eighty stomachs examined, the pha-be 
showed that 93 per cent of their yearly food was 
insect. The bluejay eats many noxious insects, as 
also does the crow, and to save these birds for the 
good they do, it is well to resort to considerable 
trouble to protect the orchard and the corn fields 
from their attacks without killing either of these 
birds. The bobolink, while a troublesome bird in the 
rice fields, had the merit of feeding mostly on insects 
during its nesting season in this State. Two hundred 
and thirty-eight stomachs of the meadow lark con- 
tained 73 per cent insects. Caterpillars formed 34 
percent of the food in 113 stomachs of Baltimore 
orioles. 

The following birds are known to be valuable as 
insect destroyers, and it is hoped that careful obser- 
vation of Iheir habits may be made, with a view of 
seeing the good done by them and of protecting them, 
so they can increase in numbers to combat the rapid 
spread of injurious insects: Bobolink, barn swallow, 
catbird, cuckoo, cedar bird, chickadee, chipping 
sparrow, finch, grosbeak, martin, meadow lai k, night 
hawk, oriole, ph<»'be and all fly catchers, robin, quail, 
thrasher, tanager, vireos, warblers, woodpeckers, 
and all sap-suckers and wrens. Hawks, owls, blue- 
birds, kingbirds, crows, crow blackbirds and red 
wing blackbirds do far more good than barm. 



A Mix-Up With Lions. 

A most surprising story of an adventure with lions 
is that related by Game Ranger Wolhuter whilst in 
the service of the Transvaal Government. So ex- 
traordinary and unusual is the narrative that it is 
attested by a magistrate's certificate, for ordinarily it 
would be the subject to an incredulous reception. 
The tale is sensational to a degree and told in the 
words of Wolhuter himself, is as follows: 

"I was riding along a Kaffir path about an hour 
after sunset; it had been a long march, and I pushed 
on ahead of the boys in order to get to the kraal at 
Metzi Metz as soon as possible. My dog barked at 
something which I took to be reedbucks, but a 
moment later I saw a lion crouching close to me on 
the off side. I turned my horse sharply in the opposite 
direction, and this no aoubt caused the lion to miss 
his spring, as, though the horse had some nasty claw 
marks on the quarters, the bound which he gave 
saved him. I was unseated, and simultaneously I 
saw another lion coming at me from the opposite 
direction; the horse rushed off with the first lion in 
pursuit, and the second, no doubt considering me the 
easier prey, picked me up almost before I touched the 
ground, and gripping me by the right shoulder in 
sucy a position that I was face up, with my legs and 
body dragging underneath his belly, proceeded to 
trot off down the path, uUering all the time a loud 
growling, purring noise." 

•'The Hon took me nearly two hundred yards, my 
spurs all the time catching In the ground until the 
leathers broke. Suddenly I bethought me of my 
sheath knife, which I carry on my belt behind my 
right hip; as the lion had hold of my right arm and 
shoulder, I had to reach behind with my left hand, a 
matter of some difficulty; but I at last succeeded, and 
I am sure no one ever gripped anything so tight as I 
did that knife after I had got it out. On reaching a 
large tree with overhanging roots the lion stopped, 
and I then stabbed him twice in the right side with 
my left hand, near where I judged the heart to be. 
I found afterwards that the first stab touched the 
bottom of the heart, and the second one slit it down 
for some distance. The lion immediately dropped me, 
and I again struck him in the throat with all my 
force, evidently severing some large artery or vein, 
as the blood poured over me. He jumped back, and 
stood two or thrae yards off facing me, and gi-owling. 
I scrambled to my feet, not knowing that I had mor- 
tally wounded him, but after a few moments heturned 
and went slowly away still growling; soon the growls 
turned to moans and then ceased, and I felt he was 
dead. Before this, however, I had got up the tree as 
fast as my injured arm and shoulder would allow me, 
and I was hardly securely seated when the other lion, 
which had returned from unsuccessfully chasing my 
horse, came back to the spot where I had been seized, 
and coursed along on my blood spoor to the foot of 
the tree. He had been pursued throughout by my 
dog, a large, rough and courageous animal, with 
whom I had often hunted lions previously; he, no 
doubt, was of assistance to the horse in his escape." 

"I now shouted to my dog, and set him on the lion; 
he came up barking furiously, and the lion retreated, 
but came back again and made a rush at the dog, 
who dodged him and continued to bark all around 
him, until presently the lion went off. After a time I 
heard the boys coming along the road, shouted to' 
them, and they came up and rescued me from my 
position. The horse was found next morning not 
much injured, and the boys found and skinned the 
lion, an old male, with the canines worn flat at the 
points. He must have been hungry, as his stomach 
was absolutely empty." 

The certificate of authenticity states: — "Komatie 
Poort, Nov. 3, 1903. I hereby certify that the acci- 
dent described did occur to Game Ranger Wolhuter 
on August 26, 1903, in the Game Reserve, that Wol- 
huter killed the lion, that carried him off, with an 
ordinary sheath-knife, and that Wolhuter is still in 
Barberton Civil Hospital recovering from his injuries. 
Alfred E. Pease, Acting Resident Magistrate, Barber- 
ton District, Transvaal.'' 



"It was down in Texas several years ago that I 
came across the greatest dog I ever saw or heard of," 
remarked Phil B. Bekeart to a coterie of fellow 
sportsmen who were discussing the field trials one 
day this week. "The animal belonged to an army 
officer friend of mine, and was the greatest quail dcg 
you ever saw. We have taken that dog out fre- 
quently and he would never go wrong, and would 
point quail in the most unlooked-for-places. One day 
as we were walking into town from the army post 
where nay friend was stationed, a well-dressed 
stranger passed us. Immediately the dcg stuck his 
tail in the air and assumed the attitude recognized as 
'pointing. ' 

"It was some time before we were able to determine 
what he was pointing, but finally we decided that it 
was the stranger, which proved to be correct. We 
called to the man, and asked him if be had any quail 
about him, or if he had eaten any quail, explaining 
why we asked. He said be had nothing of the kind 
and did not remember having eaten any for some, 
months. Turning to my friend, I said: 

" 'Your old dog has gone wrong.' 

"'Not a bit of it, ' he replied. 'That dog is right, 
and I'll bet you $10 he is.' 

"I did not see then how the bet was going to be 
settled, but took it up, anyway, and we continued on 
to town. We went to the biggest hotel in the place 
to get some refreshments, and there saw the strsrppr 
we had met on the road. My friend ssked the clerk 
who the stranger was, and the clerk pointed to the 
register. As soon as my friend saw the name he gave 
a shout and called me to come over theie. 

" 'Give me your money, my boy,' he exclaimed. 
'That dog knew what he was doing when he pointed 
that man.' 

"To satisfy myself I glanced at the register and saw 
the stranger's name. It was 'Robert F. Partridge! ' "

DOINGS IN DOGDOM. 



Jack Bradshsw of Woodlawn Kennels will leave for 
the East next week on a business trip. During his 
visit In New York he will attend the W. K. ('. show. 
We know that his reception by the Knickerbocker 
talent will lie a cordial one, for he is not unknown to 
the doggy fellows who are "in the go." 



The Solwonk Kennels at Magnolia, Mass., and 
owned by .Mr. L J. Knowlcs, and of which (Joorge S. 
Thomas is the manager at the reported salary of 
$5000 a year, will be broken up and ail the dogs sold 
without reserve. The lot includos Ch. Ivel Doctor 
and Cb. Selwonk Floradora, two of the belt Bulldogs 
in this country. The list comprises some cracks In 
French Bulldojfs, Bostons, Wirohairs, Welsh, Irish 
and Minchester Terriers. These dogs have won over 
,500 first and specials during the last year. This sale 
is one of the most notable kennel dispersals up to the 
present time. 

Wandee Kennels has lost the Fox Terrier Ch. Tr\ie. 
The dog did not long survive his return from the 
East, he succombed to hemorrhages last week. Mr. 
Harley has just purchased the good stud dog Norfolk 
Truoman from N. H Hickman. 



Alia Rachel, really one of the best St. Bernard 
bitches we have on the Coast, was found the other 
day in a Richmond district stable in almost a starv- 
ing condition. She was so weak she could not stand. 
She is now in the hands of Mr. W. W. Wallace and 
is getting along nicdy. Itwasa case of cruel neglect 
on the part of the person in whose charge the poor 
dog had been left. Le King, Mr. Wallace states, has 
put on .30 pounds weight since the December show 
and is in better shape than ever before. 



Mr. George Kaper has not been long in replacing 
the famous wire-haired Fox Terrier, Raby Coast- 
guard, which he recently transferred to an American 
buyer in exchange for a big check. He has now pur- 
chased from Mr. Yeoman, Rambling Major, who won 
the championship at the Kennel Club Show at the 
Crystal Palace for the best wire halreo Fox Terrier 
dog In the show, and was also placed reserve to the 
curly-coated Retriever, Belle Vue Surprise, when in 
competition for the special for the best sporting dog 
of any breed, on which occasion Mr. Raper ofTered to 
give C150 for him. Mr. Yeoman, however, declined 
to part with the dog, as it was the first big winner 
that he had ever exhibited, and he sent him to the 
P'ox Terrier Club Show at Cheltenham, where he was 
again succefsful in winning two or three first prizes. 
Mr. Raper was, however, determined to complete the 
purchase, and eventually persuaded Mr. Yeoman to 
transfer the animal in exchange for something like a 
couple of hundred pounds, "This was a big figure to 
give for a puppy not yet twelve reonths old, but he is 
undeniably well bred, as he is by the Duchess of New- 
castle's Commodore of Nott.a, and his dam. Rambling 
Fairy, is descended from the celebrated Tipton 
Slasher, one of the best wire-haired terriers thatever 
lived. — English Shooting Times. 



Promises of the best show ever given in Portland 
were made at the annual meeting of the Portland 
Kennel Club hold last month, oflicers and members 
alike joining in a discussion of plans for the future. 
The newly elected directors are<a unit in declaring 
that they will do their utmost to see that the bench 
show is a credit to the clab and to the city. Work 
upon the coming show, which will be held in April, 
will commence at once including not only the gather- 
ing of cups to be ofTered as prizes, but for a large list 
of entries. 

It was an enthusiastic meeting that was held at 
which rej)orls of the out-going ofTlcers were received 
and a numhor of application^ voted upon. Ollicers 
for the ensuing year were elected as follows; J. A. 
Taylor, president; E. F. WIIIIp, vice-president; T. E. 
Daniels, secretary; William (loldman, treasurer and 
Dr. J. .Smith, V. H. P'leming and Frank F. Watkin, 
to compose the board of directors. Auditing com- 
mittee, F. H. Fleming, J. A. Taylor and W. M. Davis, 
chairman. 

Secretary W. W. F'easleo reported the club to be in 
a good financial condition, despite the fact that some 
$!K» was lost in the last bench show. There is at 
present a membership of 225, as against 180 for last 
year, with ra<h on hand $''i'<?i.33. 

Dr. A. E. Tucker, the retiring president, made an 
address. He called attention to toe fact that three 
years ago, when the club gave Its show, there were a 
lartre number of entries, while the number has since 
d <findlcd chiefly because all the people could not gain 
prizes. In closing ho said : 

"Last year's show, however, was the best show wo 
ever had, although we lost $!tO, instead of making a 
financial success. The dogs were better and the entry 
list was not small. The prizes were all that could 
have been expected, and the show was the best bench 
show that has ever been held anywhere in the North- 
west. ' ' 

In speaking of the proposed afflllatlon with the 
American Kennel Club, Dr. Tucker jtated that the 
Portland Kennel Club was now an assured success 
as the successful shows of the past had demonstrated 
beyond a doubt that It mattered not whether the 
club was a member of the American Kennel Club or 
the Pacific Kennel League. 



Pit Dogs. 

In both England and America for ages dog fighting 
has been a popular sport, and the custom of breeding 
and matching dogs and fighting them in the pit, while 
contrary to law, is practiced in many cities through- 
out the United States. 

The first dog fight of importance in the United 
States occurred about 1><17, and a descriptioo of all 
the famous canine battles since then would fill a large 
sized volume indeed. 

The fighting dog is neither the Bulldog nor the Bull 
T»rrior. Ho Is a "take down" of the two. That in, 
the Bull Terriers are bred from the full-lilooded, bow- 
legged, heavy-faced English Bulldog and the thor- 
oughbred Foxhound, and the best come from the 
north of England. In the breeding of these animals 
a high-spiritrd hound is selectid, and, as she is si uie- 
what of a fighter herself, her ofTsprings retain all of 
the father's and some of the mother's ferocity and 
vigorous nature and inherit the mother's lirains. It 
is claimed as a scientific fact that the real Bulldog hab 
the smallest brain capacity known in the animal 
kingdom. 

The "pit dog," half hound and hiilf Bulldog, pos- 
sesses intelligence (much required in the pit), strength 
and endurance in equal qualities but he has the weak- 
ness of his hound mother — that of "lotting go" when 
he should hang to his antagonist. 

To overcome this defect the Bull Terrier Is again 
bred back tothe Bulldog proper, and the combination 
thus obtained— two-thirds Bulldog and ont-thlrd 
hound— is termed the "pit Bull Terrlei." They are 
strong, willing fighters, and possess much science, 
frequently changing a bad for a good hold during the 
progress of a battle, when their full-blooded grand- 
father would hold to his death. 

The coloring Is varied — ptire white, white and brin- 
die, solid tiger brindle, lemon and white, but never 
black or with black markings whatever. The weight 
averages from twenty-five to fifty pounds, and the 
best fighters known scale near thirty-five pounds in 
pit condition. 

These dogs are trained for the pit much in the 
same manner as are the prizefighters trained for the 
ring, or horses for the turf. They aredieted. rubbed, 
sweated (a dog sweats only from the mouth), walked, 
run on a treadmill, blanketed, etc. They are feu 
sparingly until they are brought almost to the weak- 
ening point, when their diet is changed gradually 
and they are built up In muscle with strictly first- 
class beefsteak, cooked rare, sponge cake soaked in 
wine, claret preferred, until the day before the fight, 
when they are "dried out. " This consists of keeping 
the dog free from food or drink for at least twelve 
hours, at the expiration of which time he is fed a 
little sponge cake and wine, and given a cup of cold 
tea to allay any fever which might be noted ss a re- 
sult of his hard training. 

On the day of battle the dogs are placed in blankets 
and driven to the pit. Here they are wanhed in the 
presence of a selected referee. The washing also 
takes place where all bettors can satisfy themei I ve s 
that no pernicious drugs, such as carbolic, strycl tine 
or arsenic soap, has been placed on either animsl. 
No dog will take hold of another where such soap has 
been rubbed. Soda is added to the water as a pre- 
ventative against such practices. 

The washing completed, the dogs are dried with 
clean ap|)rovcd towels, and are then ordered to their 
corners. They are generally muzzled until the words 
to "let go" or "loosen dogs" is given by the referee. 

The pit is generallj- made of rough boards three 
feet high, sixteen feet long by ten feet wide. The 
bottom Is usually covered with soft carpet. 

Through the centre of the i)it a line is drawn, which 
is termed the "scratch.'" 

The seconds then take up their positions In their 
respective corners. The referee (who by the way. Is 
all powerful and must be a man of great determina- 
tion, good judgment and integrity), orders the dog 
handlers searched . This is done further to prevci t 
any trickery on the part of the handlrrp, who are 
frequently well versed In "rnbbirg, " "de pir g, " e Ic. 

All ceremony concluded, the dogs are ordered re- 
leased. Up to this time the animals are kept whh 
their talis toward each other, as, if they fsced rsch 
other their constant tugging and strnggllng would 
work harm to their "wind." When reliafcd they 
turn quickly, and with tails wagging, fiy at each 
other, meeting on or close to the "scratch." Both 
take hold and the fight is on. 

There are various rules governing the alleged 
sport. F'-ach Amer'cnn city has its own rule s and its 
canine representative by whom the local sports lay 
great store. 

The general fighting rules call for five minute 
rounds with three minutes Intermission for sporglrg, 
fanning, etc. If the fight be a finish afTair, this is 
continued until ono or the other doe refuers or Is 
dead. After the first scratch each dog must cross 
the lino and attack his adversary in succession, and 
the doe stopping on the way or refusing to leave bis 
corner Is considered the loner. 

Dog fighting, while not as brutal as the unltlated 
might he led to suppose, frequently results in tie 
death of one or both of the animals, but this rule 
does not hold good In all cases. Pilot, a Cincinnati 
canine, fought twenly-olght battles without killlrg 
one of his doughty little enemies, and he finally died 
of old age. 

If the wag of a dog's tail can bo nscrihed to 
pleasure, then nine-tenths of the fighting dogs lovo 
the sport as much as do their mastcpH. During the 
progress of a battle both does frequently wag their 
tall throughout the contest and spring to the atlsek 
with a cry resembling an exclamation of joy as much 



10 



[January 16, mi 



as hate. They are entirely fearless and will attack a 
horse, cow or in fact any animal. 

The present champion fightinff dog in this country 
is Bob, owned and bred by J ohn Robinson of Fortuna, 
Ariz. He is fifty-two pounds, lemon and white, and 
has killed eight dogs, in his eight battles. 

Breeding and fighting dogs is not confined to the 
plebian classes alone. Men of high public, social and 
tinancial standing purchase, import, breed, maintain 
and employ experts to handle them, and large sums 
of money are put up on such contests by this class of 
sporting men. 

The American bred pit dog has proved himself to 
be far superior to the English product, and has in- 
variably won wben matched against his Cockney co- 
scrapper. 

The foregoing article taken from a St. Paul ex- 
change is of some little interesv, but in a few respects 
we believe the writer is a bit vague and inaccurate to 
a certain extent. 

Fighting dogs have been bred in England for many 
years back— the Beagle and Bulldog cross is a 
standard cross. Much of the good fighting qualities, 
however, it is claimed, emanate from the white Eng- 
lish Terrier (a strong cross in the Bull Terrier), the 
latter breed is one that is noted for its pugnacious 
tenacity in a scrap. Bulldogs at one time were the 
fighting dog of the day. One of this breed has the 
faculty of holding on with a death grip once its jaws 
are fastened on an adversary. The Bull Terrier is 
the more active and full of resources, which prove 
that he can use his brain. A good fighting Bull 
Terrier will work his hold on another dog, shifting 
from place to place until he feels the other dog wince, 
then he goes into the vulnerable spot on leg, body, 
neck or belly and will cut in and worry his antagonist 
until the hold is broken or the under dog worried to 
death. Dogs have been killed in a pit that did not 
show any other evidence of damage than just the 
incisions of the teeth where the death hold bad been 
taken. The Bull Terrier is dead game without a 
doubt. A dog a bit down faced has better punishing 
jaws than one with straight or pig jaws. Champion 
vVoodcote Wonder, who is a scrapper by the way, 
may be mentioned as a dog with a good punishing 
jaw formation. 

Toere are many styles of training dogs for battle, 
far too numerous for us to touch on here. We might 
mention two methods used for wind and speed. A 
revolving table upon which the dog is placed, har- 
nessed and securely fastened so that he can not get 
away from one spot. Nearby is a caged rat or a cat. 
The dog will oaaKe an effort to get at the smaller 
animal. The more he scrambles, the faster does the 
table revolve, the dog meanwhile being held in 
practically one spot but going like the wind. Another 
method is where a sack is partially filled with straw 
and suspended two or three feet from the floor. In 
the bag is placed a cat. The dog has a square muzzle 
on. the bag is given a hard enough bunt to make the 
cat yeowl and the dog is turned loose and literally 
makes a punching bag of poor Tabby in his futile but 
vigorous efforts to get fur. 

As a preliminary to a combat the handlers "taste" 
each other's dog. Should anything unsatisfactory 
be found by one or the other in tbe flavor of a dog's 
coat, then a demand is made that the suspected dog 
be washed. Tasting in itself was quite an art among 
old time handlers. The main dope these gentry used 
for a dog's hide was nothing but ordinary red pepper, 
but it was potent; for a dog when he got a mouthful 
of capsicum would invariably breali away and sneeze 
—and then the jig was up for him. Dogs are some- 
times "tasted " after washing as an extra precaution. 

The searching of the handlers by the referee is a 
bit unnecessary, for what with keeping his dog ready 
in its corner for the call of time, and sponging and 
fanning between rounds, it would be a pretty clever 
juggler who could do very much at so busy a time and 
in plain sight of referee and spectators, and they in- 
terested to the extent of a few bets. 

The writer before referred to is somewhat mislead- 
ing in the location of the "goratch." The dogs are 
"lot go, " each from its respective corner and fly at 
each other. The initial place of meeting in the pit 
can be any wnere 80 long as they both get together. 
The first dog that turns his head away from his 
adversary is at "fault." They are then ordered to 
their corners by the "ref." The dog at fault has to 
"scratch." This line is a semi-circular mark drawn 
on the floor, or generally cut through the sawdust or 
tanbark with the ready toe of the handler's shoe, 
and is in eac/i dog's corner not more than a foot or 
two from where the dog is held back by his handler. 
The dog to "scratch" must come over to his rival's 
corner and tackle him on the scratch line. After the 
first round the dogs scratch turn and turn about. If 
a dog falters, stops or turns, or does not get to the 
scratch line in two seconds he loses. Scratching is 
done to show a dog's gameness. The old timers would 
not breed to dogs that failed to scratch. Instances 
are known whereinjured dogs have crawled over from 
their own corner to scratch; dogs with broken legs 
have also gamely gone at their adversary. In a case 
of this kind bets have been made that an injured dog 
wouldn't "scratch" and which were won by the wise 
ones who knew their dog's mettle. Clever handlers 
have a number of resources to divert or technically 
stop an on coming dog. 

The prevailing rules for a fair scratch and turn 
fight are the Police Gazette rules. The intervals be- 
tween rounds are, we believe, one minute, time is 
counted from when the dogs are separated. 

A famous local dog pit in the early 'tiOs was Con 
M-ooney's Pony Express saloon on the corner of Com- 
mercial and Kearny streets. The champion dog of 
that day was his unbeaten Irish Mike, a dog who 
always had many pounds the best of a fight— you 
could take him or leave him alone. 

The late John P. Dalton's Napoleon Jack was a 
famous canine gladiator a decade or so ago. His 
fight with the English dog Crib made history in 
"pit" annals. Jack's big fight took place in New 
Orleans; it lasted two hours and forty minutes, and 



the largest purse ever hung up at a dog Sght went to 
Jack s backers. His adversary was killed in the pit. 

A memorable fight here at Canavan's Park was that 
between Napoleon Jack and Boston Ben, a dog 
brought out here by "S. A." Riley, a sporting char- 




A Fine PUtol Target— 96 Out of Possible 100. 
(Half Size.) 

acter of those days. Jack fought Ben to a standstill 
and Ben was not a bad goer by any means. The sur- 
prising feature of this contest was that the winner 
was over ten years old. He was an all white dog and 
a good fair specimen of the breed and could have won 
on the bench easily among the Bull Terrier classes 
that were shown a few years ago. 

Few, if any, fighting dogs ever showed the head 
and ring generalship of old Jack. He won most of 
his battles in short order and was never defeated. 
Generally he would work "like lightning" for ten 
minutes or ao and at other times he would "jog" his 
adversary along until he saw the opening he wanted, 
then in he would go slap bang and it was all off with 
the other dog. He was also very clever in getting a 
grip and then holding the other dog away; he would lot 
him do all the tugging and hauling until he was spent. 
Then when he had his dog winded, the finale came in 
jig time. One of his favorite tricks was an ear-butt 
hold. He had jaws powerful and holding as a vice 
and when he got a dog in that situation he could hold 
him off and worry his soul out and the hung up dog 
could not get at him to save his canine life. 

The white old warrior, we are sorry to say, passed 
his last days neglected and uncared for. Surely ao 
unmerited reward for a dog who in his palmy days of 
a victorious career in the arena had the best of every- 
thing a dog needed and likewise — a strong following 
of sports who staid with him just so long as they 
made dollars out of his prowess. He died in the stable 
of a Western Addition fire-engine house. His skin 
was afterward stuffed and mounted and is in the 
possession now of a resident of this city. 

The bench show Bull Tei-rier, so called, (s a game 
animal from the ground up. It will be remembered, 
that Hink's Kit, was taken from the bench after win- 
ning at an English show brought to a pit and fought a 
winning fight. 

Dog fights are not without their brutal phases. 
Combats are inumerable where one or both dogs have 
been cruelly punished. 

There are many so-called fighting dogs in San 
Francisco and vicinity, but perhaps now none of real 
championship form. 

In the '6O3 and 'TOs dog fighting was a sport that 
had a strong following in this and nearby cities and 
many hot contests have been pulled off, generally at 
one Or other of the well known roadhouses of those 
days. At present, while we now and then hear of a 
pit dog and a "turn up," the sport has been dis- 
couraged to so great an extent that these affairs are 
conducted with the greatest secrecy and in the 
presence of but a limited audience. 

The 'Coast field trials are on at Bakersfield this 
week. The winners of the Derby are Stockdale 
Kennels' Pointers, Cuba's Glenwood and Cuba's Ivy- 
wood, first and second. Equal third, H. W. Keller's 
English Setter Sombra and W W. Van Arsdale's 
Keepsake. The Dtrby was finished on Tuesday 
evening. The purse amounted to $645 (50, 80 and 
besides there were three handfome silver cups. 
The All-Age started Wednesday. Dry weather con- 
ditions prevailed early in the week, but there was a 
decided improvement later on. A full report of the 
trials will appear next week. 



A Fine Pistol Target. 

During the month of Septtmber revolver and pistol 
marksmen belonging to the United States Revolver 
Association shot for the astocialicn's ctampi(Etljn 
and medal trophies, on recognized open airraoges 
As usual some of the best targets were made alter 
the record targets had beer finished-always so 
elating (?) to a marksman. ^ 

One of the targets so made now stands as the 
record pisiol target for the Chicago Sharpshoot- 
ers range, and was shot by E. L Harpham dur- 
n V D match for the pistol championship of the 
• ^- tf-, '° which match he scored 445 out of 
a possible 500. 

The target, shown herewith, reduced to half 
size, was shot immediately after the match, when 
the strain of trying to make the highest score was 
OH. It was shot in the presence of W. T. Church 
and G. Springsguth, at 50 yards, 22-caliber single 
T?'\''i''' sights. 2i pounds trigger pull, 

and U. M. C. long rifle cartridges. The score, as 
shown, is 90, 10 shots, 50 yards 

The only perfect targets we call to mind, made 
with a 22-caliber pistol at 50 yards, are those of 
Charles H. Taylor of the Harvard Pistol and Rifle 
Club, who scored 100 in 10 shots, 50 yards, in Phil- 
adelphia, 1901, and Thomas Anderton of Boston 
who, at the Walnut Hill Range, a year later, did 
the same thing. A 96 tarcet is hard to beat. 
Who can do itV 

o 

The "ad" of Glen Tana Stock Farm Kennels on 
page 15 IS of interest to Collie fanciers. Mr 
Griffiths writes that "Vesta whelped on January 
2d, nine puppies (4 dogs), all sables with white 
collars. Every litter she has she throws one or 
two prize 'vinners." 



Ihe English Pox Terrier Club is to be commended 
for two important resolutions in connection with the 
showing of dogs under judges who have recently sold 
a dog thus exhibited, and also concerning the tam- 
pering with dogs' coats. They are the following: 

1. "The committee of the Fox Terrier Club, al- 
though aware that there is no law against a judge 
judging a dog recently sold by him, or against an 
exhibitor showing a dog under a judge from whom 
he has recently purchased it, view this practice with 
very great disfavor, because, in their opinion, such a 
practice is against the best interests of dog shows and 
IS calculated to lead (and, they understand, has led) 
to much abuse." 

The committee has further hinted that a continua- 
tion of the latter practice will leave no other course 
open to them but to apppoach the Kennel Club with 
a view to legislation on the subject. This difiBculty 
must, however, always arife so long as judges sell 
dogs, unless a rule is passed by the Kennel Club that 
a dog must not be exhibited under the person from 
whom it has been purchased until six months after 
the sale. 

2. "In consequence of the practice of tampering 
with the coats of wire-haired Fox Terriers, by the 
use of sticky substances, the Fox Terrier Club com- 
mittee beg to call the attention of judges to this 
reprehensible practice, in the hope that they will call 
in the advice of the veterinary inspector in cases 
where there is ground for suspicion, with a view to 
lodging an objection." 

It is reported that the next show of the London 
Fox Terrier Club is to take place on April 19th and 
20th at the Crystal Palace, when Mr. J C. Tinne will 
judge the smooth variety, and Mr, R. Vicary the 
wire-haired. 

Steelhead fishing in the coast Btreams is unusually 
good at present. A run of fish in Russian river has 
attracted the attendance of a large number of local 
anglers who are having a glorious outing now at 
Duncan's Mills Reports from Eel river, the Gual-. 
lala, from Scotts and Waddell creeks state that the 
game fish are much in evidence. The run this year 
is a bit earlier than usual and the fish are nearly all 
large ones. Paper Mill creek tide waters are also full 
of steelheads. 

Salmon fishing on the Santa Cruz side of Monterey 
bay is excellent just now. A big run of fish, after the 
immense schools of sardines, started in last week. 
Boats have been taking from 15 to 40 fish daily — on 
spoonhooks. 

The San Antone seems to be inexhaustible, last 
week Al Gumming caught 40 striped bass that weighed 
240 pounds all told. 

Duck shooting in this vicinity is of a patchy order. 
The bay is covered with thousands of canvasback and 
bluebilis, but they are very wary. Marsh shooting 
generally seems to bs a bit on the wane. 



The suggestions made last week relative to a state 
circuit seem to have made a favorable impression. 
Santa Barbara is now in line for a show. Mr. R. 
Armstrong, a prominent fancier of that city, states 
that there is every possibility of holding a successful 
show in Santa Barbara. 

The San Francisco Kennel Club held a meeting last 
Monday evening. The Pacific Fox Terrier Club will 
meet next week. 

Duck a nd Quail Outfits. 

The damsnd at Skinner's keeps up for sportsmen's outfits, 
ammunition and guns. A large and new stock of goods has been 
added to fill the demand for bunting suits, rubber booti and 
hunters' footwear; canvas and folding wooden decoys, gun oases 
and a new design of leather-covered shell boxes. Peters Factorj- 
Loaded Shells are unequaled. Skinner's place is 801 Market 
street. You can get anything there you need for duck or quail 
shooting. Send for a catalogue, if you haven't the time to come 
and try a mall order, , 



It is not often that sea lions appear in the rivers as 
far north as this county, states the Sutter County 
Farmer, but this season several have been seen in the 
upper river. One day last week Charles Ullrey and 
James Murphy, two hunters, heard what they 
thought was a dog barking in the tules on the Brown- 
ing land southwest of Sutter City, and on investigat- 
ing the disturbance found a huge sea lion stranded in 
the shallow water. When they approached him he 
showed fight and got around quite lively on his big 
flippers until they finally had tp shoot him. The lion 
was eight feet long and weighed over .500 pounds. His 
skin weighed 150 pounds and the fur was fine and 
glossy. He had come up the Sacramento river on a 
fishing excursion and wandered out into the tules. 
The water receding left him stranded and unable to 
get back. 

Strike! — if they don't give you Jackson's Napa 
Soda when you ask for it.

THE FARM. 



Controlling Egg Fertility. 



Many are now thinking about filling 
their incubatora with eggs and are won- 
dering' how and where to get anough fer- 
tile ones to do the business. 

If you raise your own it should not be a 
difficult job to have them fairly fertile. 

Do not force yourhenh all winter trying 
to make an ezg record and then expect a 
lotof feftile eggs when the breeding season 
opens in the spring. Just keep your 
fowls healthy, do not feed them too much 
stimulating food nor get them too fat. 
If they lay a few eggs it will do no harm, 
but do not force them with green bone, 
mashes, etc., until you want eggs for 
hatching, then do not overdo the matter. 

I always have noticed that we get the 
most fertile eggs after the hens have 
been out on the ground for a week or 
two. If we want fertile eggs early w 
must follow these natural conditions as 
nearly as possible, supplying food that 
will take the place of bugs, worms, 
grass, etc. 

Some form of meat meal or green bone, 
also clover meal and cabbage or apples 
in addition to a variety of grains will do 
this. 

Feed a mash once a day. Fowls 
should not be compelled to grind all of 
their food, they do better and lay more 
and stronger eggs when part of it is 
done for them. 

I am sure two-year-old hens will give 
more fertile eggs tlian younger ones and 
their eggs will hatch stronger chickens. 

If you mate two vigorous cockerels to 
about twenty-five hens, keeping one shut 
by himself, and changing them every day 
or two it will assist in getting more fertile 
egSSi as in this way all of the hens will 
mate to either one or the other of the 
males. 

In mating in this way, have cockerels 
brothers and as near alike as possible in 
size, shape, color, etc., for hest results. 
Gather eggs promptly on cold days, never 
letting them get chilled, and do not keep 
them over ten days before incubating.— 
E. E. Lairrence. 

Oat meal or rolled oats can be fed to 
advantage to growing chicks, but we 
advise not feeding it too freely. 



Poultry Pointers. 

The point of using pure bred, healthy 
and vigorous male birds cannot be too | 
strongly impressed. 

Your laying houses should be well I 
built, dry and well ventilated, but see] 
that there are no drafts. 

In any man's orchard poultry always 
more than pay their way from the simple 
fact of their destroying curculia as well 
as other insects detrimental to all fruit 
trees. 

The three great evils to the handling 
of poultry is bad ventilation of the 
buildings, flltbiness and over crowding 
of birds. 

In the fall and spring is the best time 
to make a start and do this with stock. 

With poultry it is best to go slowly 
and surely at first, and be careful to 
make the beginning with good stock, 
for a great deal depends upon this first 
starting in the business. 

If your chicks or ducklings are care- 
lessly handled in the first few weeks of 
their lives, they will never get over it. 

As to the best breed of poultry this 
depends invariably upon who Is behind 
it. 

The more birds you have in one build- 
ing the more attentton should be given 
them in the way of cleanliness. 

Do not neglect to chop some onions for 
your poultry, for they will eat them with 
a great relish.

but they are too large to smoke meat suc- 
cessfully unless one is willing to devote a 
good deal of time and fuel to the business, 
writes F. M. Wood in the Ohio Farmer, 
and when an old building of this kind has 
a few loose boards or missing ones to give 
the smoke a chance to escape, getting the 
meat smoked seems like an endless job to 
the women and children who often have 
this work to do. 

Many farmers in this section of the 
country are constructing very small build- 
ings for this purpose, just large enough to 
hold the meat after it is hung, so the 
pieces will not touch. They are made as 
tight as possible. A little smoke goes a 
long way in a building of this kind. It is 
important that pork should be well 
smoked. The rich brown color that is 
given by thorough smokingKives the meat 
an attractive look. Then it tastes, keeps 
and sells better. Sometimes the farmer 
has a surplus of smoked side meat, and 
buyers prefer meat that is well smoked. 
We find that an old heating stove that 
has outlived its usefulness comes handy to 
smoke meat. It is worth more for this 
purpose than the junk man would give us 
As to fuel there is nothing better to make 
a big volume of smoke than new, clean 
corncobs. When they show an inclination 
to blaze too much we dip a few of them in 
water. The wet cobs keep down the fire 
and furnish a lot of smo^e. 

We like to smoke our meat early in the 
season in order to get it sacked and put 
away before the troublesome bugs and 
frisky flies make their appearance. We 
tie each piece tightly in paper flour sacks, 
and insects never bother. The paper 
sacks protect the meat better than the 
muilin sacks so often used for this pur- 
pose. We always purchase our flour in 
fifty and eighty-five pound bags. When 
emptied we preserve them for this pur- 
pose. The fifty pound sacks are just the 
right size for large hams and shoulders, 
while the smaller pieces fit nicely in the 
smaller sized sacks. The sacks contain- 
ing meat should be hung in a dark, cool 
closet or room where the air will reach 
them on all sides, then they will keep 
perfectly during the hot summer months. 
If meat is piled up on a shelf, or in a box, 
or hung so the pieces touch, it is sure to 
mold badly in warm, rainy weather. 

There are many different and success- 
ful ways of putting away smoked meat for 
Rummer use. Some put the meat in a 
large box and fill in between the pieces 
and in all the crevices with wood ashes, 
bran or oats, with a thick layer of what- 
ever filling is used on top. With any of 
these methods care must be used to put 
enough of the filling between the pieces 
BO they will not touch. A hot, stuffy 
room is a poor place in which to keep 
meat. There must be good ventilation 
where meat is stored. A good way to 
keep home cured dried beef is to pack it 
in dry salt. Meat that is properly cured, 
smoked and carefully put away will keep 
until hog killing time rolls around again. 
We think those wlio complain of meats 
spoiling or becoming inhabited must be 
careless in their methods. 



The Life of a Farmer. 



The farmer Is a h«ppy man- 
Sometimes. 

He lays a wealth of dollars up, 
And dimes. 

He has DO cares to worry him 
Or fret 

His soul, because be never is 

In debt. 
When he Is hungry all he has 

To do 

Is to go out and blithely dig 
A few 

Potatoes, or to pick some fresh 

Oreen peas. 
His life is full of simple joys 

Like these. 
He sees the sun rise nearly ev- 

Ry day. 
Oh, life to htm is only sport 

And playl 
He does not have to think about 

His dress; 
He gets along with one good suit, 

Or less. 
He wife so seldom has to go 

In town 

She only needs to have one King- 
Ham gown. 
And he is nevar tortured with 

The blues, 
Because the children never need 

New shoes. 
Oh: life is just one round of joy 

And fun 
To farmers. How I wish that I 

Were one! 
I'd blithely lay the dollars up. 

And dimes, 
Just as the happy farmer does 

Sometimes. — Selfcteil. 



Advice on Feeding. 



Professor Henry of the University of 
Wisconsin gives the following advice 
regarding grinding feed for stock : 

"The subject is a difficult one to dis- 
cuss owing to the great variety of con- 
ditions existing as to both grain and 
animals. Directions are here given 
which may serve to guide the feeder in 
his practice. For horses which are out 
of the stable during the day and worked 
hard all grain, with the possible exception 
of oats, should be ground. For those at 
extremely hard work all grain should be 
ground and mixed with chafTed hay. For 
idle horses oats or corn should not be 
ground, nor need the hay or straw be 
chaffed. A cow yielding a large flow of 
milk should be regarded as a hard work- 
ing animal and her feed prepared ac 
cordingly. Fattening steers and pigs may 
be crowded more rapidly with meal than 
with whole grain, though there is more 
danger attendant upon its use. 

Sheep worth feeding can always grind 
their own grain. In general idle animals 
and those having ample time for mastica- 
tion, rumination and digestion do not 
need their grain or roughage prepared as 
carefully as do those with only limited 
time for these essential operations. Ex- 
periments quite generally show increased 
gains from grinding grain, but in many 
cases they are not suflScient to pay the 
cost of grinding." 



Breeding for Bone. 

Export dealers in American draft 
horses insist on animals with good bone 
and blocky formation. The symmetry of 
a draft horse depends largely upon well 
distributed substance in all parts of the 
personality of the animal. The quality of 
inferior bone and substance is the natural 
inheritance of many of the draft horses 
bred in America, occasioned by the im- 
portation of sires of light bone formation. 
Dealers more ambitious to get rich 
quickly than to improve the (juality of 
American horses brought over many in' 
ferior animals for breeding purposes. It 
takes several generations of methodical 
breeding to establish any family char- 
acteristic. The stallion with inferior 
bone, by crossing with mares of superior 
bone development, and then mating the 
progeny with sires of extra bone and sub- 
stance, might in a few generations of con- 
secutive breeding produce horses of the 
desired substance. The best breeders of 
Europe are particular to patronize stal- 
lions with strong bone and substantial 
personality. The strong bone of the Bel- 
gian, Shire and Clydesdale horses has 
been developed by methodical breeding 
and scientific rations during the period to 
maturity. The superlative quality of a 
breed can be largely nullified by injuri- 
ous feeding. F'rom tbe day the foal is 
dropped until maturity the ration should 
be adapted to building up a grand super- 
structure. In nearly all of the pro- 
nounced horse-breeding States the lead 
ing ration is corn, a grain rich in fat pro- 
ducing qualities, but deficient in proper- 
ties that promote bone formation. With 
a medium bone as the natural inheritance 
of a foal, and reared principally on the 
ration of corn, the animal will develop 
into a cheap, light boned horse. Instead 
of corn the animal should, be fed liberal 
i-ations of bran and oats that are rich in 
the elements stimulating bone formation. 
There is no reason why the American 
horse breeders can not equal or even excej 
their foreign competitors in horse breed 
ing, but to suceeed they must follow the 
method of feeding adopted by the foreign 
breeders. Foreign bred horses are raised 
principally on nitrogenous foods, while 
the American bred horses are matured on 
feed deficient fn nitrogenous constituents 
The foreign bred horse is increasing in 
bone development, while in too many in 
stances tho American horses are degen- 
erating. — Spirit of the West. 



We have no serious objection to many 
of the harmless insects who ply their 
vocation, without serious inconvenience 
to any one. But there is a tribe which 
whet their lances and insist upon visiting 
us in the silent watches of the night and 
drawing from us our life blood. We have 
seen many remedies suggested to get rid 
of them. Here is another ; Seven ounces 
turpentine, 1'.,. ounces camphor, 1 
ounces corrosive sublimate. Apply with 
a brush, every week for three weeks 
This is said to be a sure cure.

Nearly every breeder needs to practice 
the economy of manufacturers in saving 
and planning and utilizing what used to 
go to waste. Modern methods, applied 
to almost any part of farm work, will 
render it profitable. 



Defertilization of Farms. 



offers an attractive sphere for acquiring 
wealth. It has been said that any fool 
can spend money, but wisdom is needed 
to make it, and the axiom applies with 
e(iual force to the man who skins the soil. 
Elastern farms are depreciated because 
they have been robbed of their chief 
value and the improvident element that 
did the pilfering has of necessity moved 
on." _

The New Way of Oiling Roads. 

A new method of oiling roads is being 
experimented with at tbe Huntington 
Park tract in South Pasadena, which Ib 
said to make a pavement as hard as 
asphalt and one that will wear longer. 
The plan is to mix the oil and earth and 
then tamp and press it. The first step in 
the process is to plow up the roadway and 
saturate it with water, which is followed 
by a thorough soaking with oil. Then a 
a 2800-pound roller is run over the road- 
way. There are long spikes on the sur- 
face of the roller, which serves the double 
purpose of packer and mixer. Then the 
road is treated again with water, oil and 
roller. After this a two ton roller is run 
over the road. By this time it is as solid 
as a rock. It is then surfaced and is 
ready for use. — ISuisun liepublican. 



The size and shape of the udder count 
for a good deal, but some milkers do not 
show much udder, while some very poor 
milkers have large, lleshy development of 
the mammalary glands. 



The soil is so rich on many California 
farms that there are many owners who 
seem to think their land is inexhaustible. 
They will find ere long, however, their 
mistake, unless they return to the 
soil some of the elements that have been, 
and are being taken from it year after 
year. The Chicago Stock World says on 
this subject ; "An Iowa man went down i 
into New York State the other day and | 
bought a farm for $35 an acre. Originally 
it was fertile land, worth double what he 
paid, but generations of successive crop- 
ping had all but exhausted its fertility 
and rendered cultivation unprofitable. 
And there are thousands of such farms 
scattered all over the Eastern States seek- 
ing buyers The tenant system is one 
cause of this alarming sterility and as 
tenants flee from skinned farms the real 
estate goes on the bargain counter simul- 
taneously with his disappearance. This 
process has not been confined to the far 
Eastern States by any means. Indiana, 
Michigan and Ohio have sutTered from it 
and Illinois is already infected. Wherever 
railroad tonnage shows a decrease in live 
stock the microbe of soil poverty is at 
work. It is this defertilization that ex- 
plains why the Eastern farm has de- 
preciated while Western lands have in- 
creased in value. Undoubtedly the 
greatest problem confronting the skilled 
agriculturist is the economical and profit- 



Twenty reasons why the farmer should 
raise mules," is the title of a folder pub- 
lished by a breeder of Kansas. It is worth 
reproducing and is ai follows: 

1. They can be raised cheaper 
any other stock. 

2. Will go into market sooner 
horses. 

3. They are marketable &t any 
from weaning time (four months 
until incapacitated by old age. 

4. Are less liable to contract disease 
than the horse. 

5. Pasture a number of colts through 
the grazing season and you will find 
plenty of blemishes at feeding time. 
Mules prove the contrary and have few 
if any blemishes, and their value is 
decreased by blemishes as a horse. 

6. They are easy to raise, easy to 
and hard to blemish. 

7. They instinctively avoid holes 
dangerous piaces. A team of runawav 
mules seem to run more for sport than 
fright, and usually stop before damage ii 
done, while a horse never stops until he 
is completely freed. 

8. The mule is more steady when at 
work than the horse, less nervous and is 
not so liable to become exhausted, and 
trusty as to need no driver or lines. 

0. Can stand heat better than the 
horse, are steady and can be relied upon. 

10. Can stand more abuse and hard- 
ship than a horse, but will respond as 
quickly &i the horse to good feed and kind 
treatment. 

11. The profit in mule-raising is their 
quick growth. Are marketable at three 
years old. A horse colt can not be sold to 
an advantage until five. So the expense 
of two years' feeding and handling is 
saved. 

12. No kind of horse flesh is more stable 
in price, excepting thoroughbreds or 
fancy specimens. Will bring more per 
pound upon the open market or cost less 
to produce in the actual value of food con- 
sumed and time and labor required. 

13. There is always a steady demand 
for good mules. A buyer will always 
handle them. If there are plenty of 
mules raised in a section of a country 
there will be plenty of mule buyers. 
Mule buyers are not going where there 
are no mules to buy. In time of war in 
any country mules are always picked up 
at a high price and very highly prized. 
Why? Because they must haye them. 
They endure all kinds of hardships. 

14. Buyers make money by buying at 
weaning time, and by pasturing and feed- 
ing eighteen months have them read}' for 
the market Can be raised and handled 
easily as a lot of cattle and sheep. 

15. One steer will eat as much as a 
team of mules. A good steer at three 
years old is worth $70 to $75. A team of 
mules at the same age (good ones) will 
sell from $250 to $300, having eaten no 
more feed. 

16. Feed the same amount to a bunch 
of mules that you do to your hogs and see 
which will make you the most money. 

17. A good cow fed to make butter, 
will consume as much or more feed than 
a team of mules from the time dropped 
until three years old. 

18. As for line animals, they can not 
be beaten, and are being used on the 
farms more extensive for this purpose. 
Also in our large cities are being used ex- 
clusively for draying and heavy street 
work, standing the wear of the hard 
streets twice as long as a horse. 

10. As they will not breed they were 
created for a special purpose, and that is, 
as true, honest, durable and valuable 
workers, taking the place of a team of 
horses and lasting much longer. 

20. The reader will probably say : 
"Why not more mules raised?" Simply 
because in some localities there are no 
jacks to breed to. Good mules cannot be 
raised unless you breed to a good jack. If 
farmers could sell yearling horse colts at 
$80 each they would be willing to buy all 
tbe stallions in sight at $2000 to $3000 
each. Then why should they hesitate to 
buy jacks at $500 to $1000 each, when a 
jack has four times the service of a horse 
in his natural life, and lives to be almost 



jable refertilization of denuded land. It twice the age of a horse?

Beef and War. 



Wars are invariably productive of an 
increased demand for food supplies in the 
countries involved, consequently the prices 
of cerUin articles of foods, especially 
meats, rise in those nations from which 
the bulk of such supplies ii obtained. It 
is therefore certain that the American beef 
trade wil. derive stimulation from the 
augmented request for beef which is sure 
to come in the event of an armed conflict 
between Russia and Japan. It has already 
been reported that the former country re- 
cently purchased a million pounds from 
an American pecking bouse for the com- 
missary department of its armv, and it 
was intimated by the Russian representa- 
tive at the lime of the purchase that his 
country would make larjrer drafts should 
it become involved in war. To what ex- 
tent the price of beef would be influenced 
by the contingency in question no one 
may foretell, but a materially enlarged 
demand for American beef from whatever 
source will increase its price, and produc- 
ers would share in whatever financial 
benefit which might accrue to our meat- 
making industry as a result of war be- 
tween Russia and Japan. 

Meat is the conquering soldier's staff of 
life. It is the material which supplies 
him with energy and force, gives him the 
power of endurance and puts into his 
blood and fiber the elements that make 
armies brave, courageous and victorious. 
Meat-eaters rule the world both in peace 
and war. For this reason the country 
whose meat-making industry has assumed 
such large proportions as that of the 
United States seems not only secure from 
■uccessful invasion, but is in position to 
profit bv wars between foreign powers. 
.\merica is a large producer of meat and 
offers it for sale to the world to use as it 
may see fit— to feed soldiers or the apostles 
of peace. In the prosecution of Oriental 
wars the belligerent nations must seek 
food supplies in the Occident, and should 
Russia and Japan come to blows large 
riuantities of American beef and other 
provender would undoubtedly find their 
way to those distant climes.— Breeders 
Gazette. 

Geo. F. Thompson, of the bureau of 
animal industry, writes in the Farmers 
Revietr : In building up a flock of Angoras 
from common goats, the males must not 
be permitted to grow into bucks of breed- 
ing age; and even among the high grades 
there are comparatively few bucks to 
be retained as such for breeding purposes. 
They should be castrated early. The 
great majority of these wethers, espe- 
cially if they are of the first or second 
cross, do not produce sufficient mohair 
of good quality to warrant flock raisers in 
keeping them. These should be converted 
into meat as soon as large enough. Those 
wethers and does which produce a fair 
quality of raohair may be retained for 
that purpose for a few years and then 
killed for meat. They are not, however^ 
so good for this purpose as the younger 
animals. There is a deep seated prejudice, 
as has already been stated, against the 
use of goats of any kind for meat. This is 
founded upon ignorance rather than ex- 
perience. The most ill-smelling billy of 
the worst possible type is by many made 
the standard of goat meat for the whole 
goat family. As far back as Abraham's 
day we read of goats being used for meat 
(very likely Angoras), and this, too, when 
there were many cAttle and sheep. 
Certainly no prejudice existed against 
them at that time. 

o 

It is announced that a New England 
man has succteded in making a sub- 
stitute for willow ware, tough and durable, 
which will supplant the (lerman willow 
ware, of which we import millions of 
dollars worth annually. Whether this in- 
vention is a practical one or not, there is 
no reason why American farmers cannot 
raise all the willow rods which this 
country can consume in the way of baskets 
and willow work. Thousands of farms 
contain willow supplies or little streams 
which furnish excellent opportunities for 
willow growing, and which are of little 
use otherwise. 



Alfalfa for Pigs. 



Pigs complete their growth in much less 
time than either calves or colts .\lfalfa 
alone will not furnish enough mineral 
matter to secure the greatest development 
of bone iu pigs. In addition to alfalfa 
growing pigs should be fed all the corncob 
charcoal they will eat. as this supplies the 
needed mineral matter. In a lest made 
by the writer pigs were forced to the limit 
of feed and weighed daily, and it was 
found that the gains were proportionate 
to the amount of corncob charcoal eaten. 

With growing animals other than pigs 
we have not found it necessary to supply 
more mineral matter than that furnished 
by alfalfa. 

The stockman can develop cheaply bone 
in his pigs, calves and colts with alfalfa 
in summer and alfalfa hay in winter. lie 
can safely and profitably feed his breeding 
females— mares, cows and sows — alfalfa 
hay every day in the year and thereby 
secure well developed bone in the young 
at birth. I'nder favorable conditions hi- 
cows and calves can be pastured on alfalfa. 



Sales at Fairs. 



Sales at fairs have long been a feature 
of lh« Fnglish cattle shows. In fact, they 
have become so general that many of the 
English shows are really market days and 
are held at frequent intervals. Sales have 
played a more or less important part with 
Americin exhibitors, but have always 
been made privately, and fair officials 
have taken little or no interest in en- 
couraging them. There would seem to 
be an opportunity in this country for ad- 
vancement in this direction. If sale 
classes are arranged for and a certain part 
of the day set aside for auction sales of 
cattle or other produce both the fair 
management, exhibitors and general pub- 
lic might be benefited thereby. It would 
help the farmer out at the spot where he 
is weakest— that is, in marketing what he 
grows. — American A(jricidluriM. 



Not a Bad Story. 

The Texa.B Stock Journal says that an 
Iowa farmer had a cow killed by a train 
on a railroad. He presented his claims 
to the company in a note, in vrhich he 
said, "Thirty dollars will be considered 
sufficient, as the animal killed was but a 
common cow and by no means the best of 
my herd." The claim agent of the road 
answered the letter promptly and inclosed 
a check for $100. lie wrote the farmer. 
"It is the first instance since my con- 
nection with the road fhat any other than 
a full blooded animal of great value hbs 
been killed by our trains, and I inclose 
$100 as damages and a reward for your 
honesty, and I would humbly ask for 
your photograph to be framed and placed 
in my ottice."

Grind Grain for Hogs. 

In feeding dry whole wheat there is 
much waste because much of the grain is 
swallowed whole. Any small grain used 
for feeding hogs should be coarsely 
ground, for underground grain is totally 
indigestible, for the outer skin that pro 
tects the digestible |K>rtioii of the grain is 
unaftectetl by the digefttive juices of ani- 
mals, and, having no gi/.zard and grit 
whereby to do the grinding themselves, 
it is not digested, but wasted. — Farm and

Dairy Notes. 

The celebrated Holetein-Freeian cow, 
Veg'iH Inka, recently sold at auction for 
$1600. 

Some believe that it pays to Bcrub the 
mangers every two months with soap, 
lye and water. 

Wooden churns have been found the 
best. They are easy to cleanse with hot 
water, and when sunned, keep sweet and 
clean. 

A good, steady churning is better than 
to churn at too rapid a rate, whatever be 
the shape of the churn. Two much haste 
leaves butter in the milk. 

It has been found that the most satii- 
factory churn has no inside fixtures of 
any kind. The creameries find that 
paddles, dashers, etc., are inclined to 
break the globules of butter, and are 
difficult to keep clean, as the cream ad- 
heres to them. 

One cannot please the market V y salt- 
ing butter to please his taste. Find out 
from each customer how he wants his 
butter salted, and fix it so to his taste 
that he will be willing to pay a good price 
for it, and will prefer yours to any other. 

Really, the best way to mend old dairy 
utensils is to get new ones. It is difficult 
enough to keep everything clean under 
the most favorable circumstances; it is 
much more difficult to keep them sweet 
if they have numerous rough, patched 
places. 

Not every man who starts out to g-et 
good prices and make a good reputation 
succeeds Some spend lots of money and 
come out dead broke. He will probably 
learn if he perseveres, and his money 
does not give out. But it is worth the 
effort to those who love the work. 

Cows bought for family use should be 
tried by the purchaser. It does not nec- 
essarily follow that because a cow does 
good work for one person, and sur- 
rounded bj certain conditions, that she 
will do the same for another persoc- 
under other conditions. This is th< 
reason that some highly recommended 
cows have not given sairlsfaction. 

A New York milk inspector is said to 
have notified some milkmen that he had 
found a million bacteria to a half a 
spoonful of their milk, which was the 
danger limit. Surely no milkman could 
ask for a more accommodating Inspector 
than that. They certainly would not 
want to impose upon his customers more 
than a million bacteria in a half a tea- 
spoon of fresh milk! 

o 

Says a Chicago journal: Just what 
meat contracts have fallen into the maws 
of the packers, owing to the war prospect, 
are a matter of conjecture. Packers are 
not in the habit of asking the public to 
step in and look at their books, but that 
both Japan and Russia are their customers 
is without doubt. Naturally they are 
averse to making details known, as these 
are short time orders and if of large 
volume would be calculated to arouse 
bullish sentiment in the country and re- 
tard marketing. But the killers are known 
to be pressed for siippliei, and this is one 
strong feature of the outlook from the 
growers' standpoint. 

o 

Roup may be generally traced to want 
of cleanliness, lice or undue exposure to 
wet and cold weather. 

Always aim to keep your poultry as 
well as all other stock on the farm on 
good terms with you by keeping on good 
terms with them. 

We have found that a laying hen is 
never classed as a lazy hen, as she will 
keep herself busy if you give her a chance. 

Care should be taken that your hens do 
not get over-fed, or they will become over- 
fat and their eggs will not hatch. 

Scaly leg is the work of a minute insect 
that burrows itself under the scales of 
the legs. 

Poultry of all kinds must have careful 
every-day care, in order that you make 
the success with them that you are 
looking for.

REPEATING SHOT GUNS 



A CHANCE FOR A DOUBLE 

A QUESTION often asked about Repeating Shotguns is, "How quicic can a second shot befired with 
them?" Shooters that have used Repeaters answer with one accord : "Doubles" are just as easy to 
make with a WINCHESTER REPEATING SHOTGUN as they are with a double-barreled 
gun. The third shot that a Winchester Repeater gives often bags a badly crippled bird which otheVwise 
would get away. Winchester Repeating Shotguns are made in "Take Down" styles in 12 and 16 gauge.

Pacing Mare by McKinney 2:11 1-4 

ELECTRO McKINNEY 

Brown Colt, Four-Year-Old Trotter by McKinney 2:11 1-4 

RITA H. la a dark brown mare who stands nearly 16 hands high, and will weigh in racing trim 
about lOSti lbs This mare has had this year a very remarkable record. She started in the North- 
western Circuit in the States of Oregon and Washington, and out of eight starts won her first seven 
races and only lost four heats during the entire circuit, and has a pacing record of 2: 1 H<. The mare 
Is five years old and is excellent on the road. She does not pull or lug, and a lady can drive her 
anywhere. Last spring she trotted a workout mile in a:l8V4and repealed in 2:I6V4, after only ieven 
weeks' work. Her owner has driven her in 2:12(4 in the Los Angeles Driving Club races, she having 
won all of them in which she started. This mare can step two heats below 2:lu 

ELECTRO McKINNEY is a brown stallion foaled in 1900, and stands 15 hands 1 Inch in height. 
He trotted a full mile as a two year-old in 2:31 ^. last quarter in 3i) seconds, and when a ihree-year- 
old a full mile in 2:21 Vi, last quarter in 32 seconds He is perfectly gaited and a grand Individual in 
every respect. Weighs about 950 lbs. ELECTRO McKINNEY is bred in the purple, and is one of 
tbe best son* of McKinney alive to day McKinney is undoubtedly the greatest sire for his age, 
living or dead. ELECTRO McKINNEY was not raced last year, being only a three-year-old and 
not entered in any stakes it was decided to hold him over. 

These horses are all r'ght and there is not a thing the matter with them, but my business 
demands are suoU that I cannot afford to devote any time to racing them. For prices and further

A Sidney Stallion With Earning Capacity 



In pursuance of my intention to retire from the business of breeding horses, 
and having- disposed of all my broodmares at auction, I now offer at private sale 
the stallion 

William Harold 2:i3i-4. 

His sire is the great Sidney 2;VJi, grandsire of the champion trotter of the 
world, Lou Dillon 1:58^, and his dam the great race and broodmare Cricket 2:10 
(dam of four in the list) by Steinway, the greatest son of Strathmore. 

WILLIAM HAROLD is a producer The only two of his get to start are 
that wonderfully fast trotter Janice 2:08} and the pacer Dan Burns 2:15. 
WILLIAM HAROLD'S services in the stud were very limited up to three years 
ago, as he was raced. His weanlings, yearlings and two-year-olds are very prom- 
ising and have size, good looks and great natural speed, besides being uniform in 
color, nearly all bays. He is a sure foal getter, is in the very best condition, sound 
and healthy, and with ordinary good business management can earn in the stud 
in 11I04 the price asked for him.

San Francisco, Saturday, January 23, 1904. 



GOOD RO.XDS do more to develop a country than 
any one thing and yet, paradoxical as it may 
seem, countries are generally pretty well developed 
before the roads are in a condition that may bo called 
good. This is because the cost is so ^reat that a 
sparsely settled country cannot afTord the expense of 
g'ood highways. Congress Brownlow of Tennessee 
has introduced a bill that is now pending in Congress 
which appropriates $24,000,000 as national aid for the 
building of wagon roade. This sum is to be available 
at the rate of $8,000,000 a year; is to be dirided ac- 
cording to the population of the different states, .but 
no state is to receive less than S2o0,000. Every state 
receiving national aid must appropriate and spend a 
like amount. The asserted growth of sentiment in 
favor of the measure has been chiefly due to the in- 
stitution and extension of the rural free mail delivery 
system, which has brought the disadvantages of poor 
roads home to the farmers and other country 
dwellers. Applications fo" the extension of the free 
rural delivery system are being refused by the Post 
Office authorities on account of the roads, and the 
disappointed communities demand their improve- 
ment. These demands are so in excess of the ability 
of the local boards to respond to that for a year past 
highway commissions all over the country have been 
putting themselves on record in favor of national aid. 
The amount which California would receive under 
this bill would be $430,000 and with the same amount 
appropriated by the State a fund would be established 
that would make a great improvement in the roads of 
California. Nothing will help the horse breeding 
business more than good roads and for this reason 
alone our readers will doubtless favor the bill, and 
look for their representatives in Congress to vote for 
it. If every horse breeder in the State woirid write 
to the Congressman from his district, requesting him 
to support the bill, it would have a large iniluence in 
favor of the measure. 



THE OCCIDENT STAKE for 1906 has 98 entries 
instead of 07 as stated on page 5 of this issue 
where the list of entries is printed. After the forms 
of our paper containing page 5 had been printed we 
received the following letter from Acting Secretary 
D. R. Miller: 

Sacramento, Cal., Jan. 21, 1904. 

Breeder and Sportsman— Please add to the 
Occident Stake for VM6 the following entry: 

S. Bartlett's oh f Flora Lowell by Frank B.-Mlss 
Johnson. 

I have only received this entry this morning, but it 
is dated January Ist and postmarked Auburn, Janu- 
ary 1st, but the envelope is marked "mlssent," which 
accounts for its not having reached me before. 

I trust this will reach you in time for you to publish 
with the rest of the entries, at the same time calling 
attention to the fact that there are '.>>* entries. 

Very respectfully, L. R. Miller, 
Acting Secretary. 



THE 850,000 WORLD'S FAIR HANDICAP wll 
be one of the great races of 1904. It will be run 
in June at the St. Louis Fair Association meeting, 
which will hold one of the greatest meetings ever 
held in the country. According to the conditions of 
the stake it is reopened for entries to be made on 
February Ist. The entrance fee for horses put in at 
that time is $750. Entries will close at the same time 
for a large number of additional stakes, the advertise- 
ment for which appears in our business columns this 
week. The World 's Fair at St. Louis this year will 
cause thai city to be visited by people from all parts 
of the globe, and horsemen will naturally want to kill 
two birds with one stone by taking in the fair and 
racing for some of the rich purses. The St. Louis 
Fair Association Stakes should be liberally patronized. 



Jackson's Napa Soda doea not tangle the feet 



Is Siring Speed, Size and Style. 

From all points in the country to Cleveland, Ohio, 
intelll(;ent horse breeders are sending mareF enough 
to the great trotter John A. .MoKerron 2:041 to fill 
his book, and California breeders should remember 
that there is at San Jose a full brother to that horse, 
and keep in the front rank by sending him some of 
their mares. The horse referred to is Nearest 2:22i 
that has already produced one In the 2:10 list, the 
mare Alone 2:091 that took her record in li>02 and 
was the fastest four-year-old of heryear. Though not 
campaigned in 1!>03, she paced a half in 591 seconds in 
a public exhibition, showing that she had more spet d 
than any pacer in Callfoanla at the time. Alone istbe 
only one of Nearest's get ever raced, hut there w ill be 
several of them out before long and they will make 
him one of California'H greatest speed sires. A half 
broke filly by Nearest out of a mare by Danton .Moul- 
trie that is now at the San Jofe track is one of the 
best prospects ever seen there. She can step a 2:20 
dip now without boots or hopples, and is hardly 
bridlowise. When the bell rings for the stakes she is 
entered in, her competitors will have to bo fast 
and juit right or the race will not be interesting. 
The trotting mare Our Lady by Nearest that is now 
owned by Mr. H. B. Cenlry, owner of MoKinney, 
slopped a trial of 2:20 at San Jose, before Mr. Gentry 
purchased her and is one of the handsomest mares 
ever driven. 

All of the get of Nearest have size and good lookp, 
and wise breeders aim for both these qualities wh(n 
selecting a stallion. 

The breeding of Nearest is gilt edge. He combines 
the blood of the Wilkes, Director, Nutwood and 
Williamson's Belmont families and should be a very 
successful horse when mated with a mare carryicg 
the blood of McKlnney, Electioneer, Sidney, Stein- 
way, Sultan or any of the prominent stallions that 
have stood in this State Mr. T. W. Barstow, owner 
of Nearest, has put the stallions fee for 1904 at $40, 
certainly a very reasonable price, as the full brother 
John A. McKerron 2:04< is standing at a fee of $200. 



Association Formed at Pleasanton. 

Pleasantox, Jan. 21.— An association to promote 
the horse interests of this section has been formed 
with Lou Crellin as president and F. E. Adams as 
secretary. The directors are among the leading 
citizens of Pleasanton and are W. H. Donohue, A. F'. 
Schweer, George Davis and G. A. ICelly. 

This association is to be permanent in its character 
and its has been decided that it will take charge of a 
race meeting to be held each year on the Pleasanton 
track. At the meeting this year tho association will 
offer $4000 in purses. 

Tho harness horse industry of Pleasanton is thriv- 
ing, and there are hundreds of the finest animals in 
the country s.ationed hero at all times. It is proposed 
by the racing association to give a meeting each year, 
at which animals can be both raced and exhibited. 
Such a meeting was held a year ago with marked 
success. 

Advisory Board's Decisions. 

At the meeting of the Advisory Board of the 
American and National Trotting Associations held in 
New York the following decisions were rendered In 
regard to time performances made in 190.T: 

"We find that the performance of Lou Dillon at 
Cleveland, O., September 12, 19(i,'t, in 2:05 to a high- 
wheeled, ball-bearing sulky, with a i)ace-maknr, with 
dirt shield in front, was not a record, because the 
mare had previously' performed in faster time, which 
performance was her record, and precluded a slower 
performance being a record. 

"We also find the performance of Maud S. at 
Cleveland, O., in 1H85, was to a high wheeled, plain 
axle, according to rules; that the time, 2:08j, was not 
only her best time, but the best time ever made up to 
that date, and was a record. 

"No record can bo made with a 'wind shield' other 
than the ordinary dirt shield and pace-makerin front. 

"A porformanco with pace-maker in front, with 
dirt shield, shall bo recorded with a distinguishing 
mark, referring to a note stating the facts." 



Will Race on the Speedway. 

Members of the San Francisco Driving Club will 
meet on the Speedway In Golden Gate Park at II 
o'clock a. m. to-morrow, Sunday, January 2Uh, and 
hold three races. All the events will bo half-milo 
heats, best two in three, and some good sport can bo 
expected . The entries are as follows: 

First race — Mr. Verlach's Gertie A., Mr. Becker's 
Dan Alden, Mr. Cuicelio's Button or Puerto KIco, 
Mr. Sprague s Clara i; , Mr. Watson's Al Sandy. 

Second race — Mr. Plllsworth's Bill I'.llsworth, Mr. 
Finch's Edward, Mr. V^erlach's Victor, Mr. Pease's 
Monkey, Mr. Cuicelio's Welladay. 

Third race — Mr. Lottawasser's Bellfiower, Mr. 
Cuicelio's Lady Lou, Mr. Benson's Starry Banner, 
Mr. SchotMer's Roy, Mr. Taylor s Zulu Lass. 



Sacramento Track News. 

Sacramento, Jan. 20, l!»04. 
Training is almost at a standBtill here at Agricui 
tural Park, as tho track is too wet to work on, owing 
to the rain of Sunday last, but us the roads are good 
is done on them whenever the weather Is 
clear, and tho Sacramento Driving Club, that has 
been compelled to postpone its matinee twice In the 
last month on account of rain, will race next Sunday 
on tho track unless another downpour stops them. 
As tho country needs rain, and it has only fallen on 
the days when the driving club announces a matinee, 
the weather bureau ofTlcials hero are almost tempted 
to promise the farmers another shower on Sunday 
next. 

Walter Masten has tho largest string hero at the 
present time. He has Falrofe 2:19, Penrofe (the fast 
son of Falrosp) and several youngsters by McKlnncy 
and Diablo. Walter is swoot on his three-year-old, 
Marvin Wilkes by Don Marvin, that won second 
money In the two-year division of the Breeders Fu- 
turity last year and would have made the winner 
step faster had he not been so unfortunate as to 
throw two shoes during the first beat of the race 
Marvin Wilkes will make the three-year olds step 
some this year to beat him. 

L. W. Clark is training a string of six. They are 
Oulboul 2:22J by Stamboul 2:07i, the three-year-old 
filly Ouiboullta by Oulboul out of Lsdy Turner that 
Is the pride of his heart, two young trotters by Silver 
Bow 2:lti, a two-year-old by Owyhee 2:11 and one 
other that I don't just remember the breeding of. 

Chris Jorgensen has several head in training, the 
majority being road horses, some of them high class. 

.Mrs. I^mma W. Callendine has Guynul, a three- 
year-old by Nutwood Wilkes; also Lady Caretta, a 
two-year-old that is entered in the Breeders Futurity. 
She is quite a promising filly. She also has Sir Carl- 
ton, that is entered in the Occident Stake. "Carly," 
as his fair owner calls him, is quite a trotter, and the 
horsemen here say he will be the winner of his year. 

Mrs. Callendine Is an enthusiastic lover ot- the 
trotter and breeds medal winning stock. 

U. S. Mitchell is training here the colt Peter 
Shields and three more by Zombro2:ll, besides some 
others that are showing well. 

Mr. Haggln has five in his string, among them a 
filly by McKinney and one by Nutwood Wilkes that 
are entered in stakes. Yours, Lady Norine.

Monroe Salisbury has discovered another promis- 
ing trotter. Last year ho purchased from the horses 
that Louis Carillo was working at Pleasanton for Mr. 
A. W. Shippee, a black gelding by Hawthorne that 
was a nice stepi)er pnd a good looker. The horse was 
purchasod for Mr. Salisbury 's brother who lives in 
Salt Lake city, to use as a road horse, and was loft 
with that gentleman when the Salisbury string 
stopped at Salt Lake on Its way East. The horse 
showed so well on the road that his owner shipped 
him back to Pleasanton last month for a little train- 
ing. Charles l)e Ryder drove the black one day last 
week and let him step the last half of tho mile. He 
made It lnl:04and three or four watches stopped at 
l:03i. Perhaps the horse will be permitted to race a 
little and get a record beforo he goes hack to the 
road again. 



To date thirteen stallions have sired one hundred 
or morestandard performers, tho list belngas follows: 
Onward 2:25J, 174; Nutwood 2:IHJ, 169; Red .Wilkes

pacing. 2:19^, 100. Tho last two entered the list this 
year. Of the thirteen sires only six, Red Wilkes, 
Alcantara, (Jambetta Wilkes, Allorton, Baron Wilkes, 
and Sidney, are now living. Allerton, seventeen 
years, is the youngest. While Ihlrtron stallions have 
sired one hundred or morestandard performers, only 
six are credited with 100 or more standard trotters, 
as follows: I^Ieclioneer 158, Onward 135, Nutwood 
1.33, Rod Wilket 1?1, Alcantara IOC, Wilton 100. 



Charlps S. Caffrey, who built the high-wheel 
sulkies drawn both by Maud S. and Lou Dillon, states 
that the sulky to which the former mare was hitched 
when she trotted in 2:0**^ was fitted with anti-friction 
roller-bearing axles, which, though not like ball- 
bearlngR, answer thfi same purpose in reducing the 
friction incident to the une of ordinary steel besrirgp. 
Mr. Caffrey further says that the sulky drawn by 
Maud S weighed about forty-throe pounds, or twelve 
pounds less than the weight of the one drawn by Lou 
Dillon. But tho Bonner heirs say the Maud S. sulky 
has no roller-bearings.

[January 23, 1904 



M JOTTINGS. 




THE MOST ABSURD RULINC ever made in re- 
g^ard to harness horse records was the one made 
by the Advisory Board of the American and National 
Trotting Associations in vrhich it was declared that 
Lou Dillon's mile in 2:05 to a high wheel sulky is not 
a record and does not displace the 2:08j of Maud S. 
Id other words, the protest made by the sons of 
Robert Bonner was sustained. The text of the de- 
cision is as follows: 

"We find that the performance of Lou Dillon at 
Cleveland, Ohio, September 12, 1903, in 2:05 to a high- 
wheeled, ball bearing sulky, with a pacemaker, with 
dirt shield in front, was not a record, because the 
mare had previously performed in faster time, which 
performance was her record, and precluded a slower 
performance being a record." 

Shades of the great Blackstone, and of all the law 
makers and commentators from the time (-f Moses to 
the present day : wouldn't that jar you? The Advis- 
ory Board would have done better had it struck out 
everything after th« word "because" and let it goat 
that. If Lou Dillon's mile in l:58i at Memphis, when 
hitched to a modern bike, precludes her getting a 
record of 2:05 to a high wheel sulky, then it must 
necessarily preclude her getting a record of 2:00 to a 
wagon. According to this decision of the Advisory 
Board, Lou Dillon could not get a record if she pulled 
a stace coach a mile in two minutes. Was anything 
more absurd ever handed down by any deliberative 
body'/ Why, according to this interpretation of the 
rules, nearly all the wagon records are null and void 
because the horses making them "had previously 
performed in faster time" when hitched to a bike. 
If there is anything more ridiculous in the entire 
history of harness racing jurisprudence will gome one 
please point it out. I have an idea that this decision 
is a record in itself, but according to the law laid 
down by the Advisory Board it may not be, as the 
Board may have, at some previous date, made a worse 
one, and if so this one don't count. 



There has been considerable said recently in some 
of the magazines and other Eastern publications 
about the Americo-Arab horse as the only horse in 
America that can be depended upon to reproduce his 
type. When we read these amusing effusions about 
the Americo-Arab we are always reminded of the 
question asked by Monroe Salisbury of a man that 
wanted to sell him a hone. After listening for a half 
hour to a glowing description of the horse's conforma- 
tion and a statement of his pedigree back to tte 
"dteenth" cross on both sides, the King maker said: 
"That's all very good, but what can hedo? " As the 
horse did not have speed for the track or road Mr, 
Salisbury had no use for him. We have heard 
much from Randolph Huntington, John Gilmer 
Speed and Colonel Spencer Border about the type of 
the Americo-Arab and his wonderful beauty, and we 
wish some of them would now tell us what he can do 



An Excellent Sale. 



Last Monday eveaing, Mr. William G. Layng, pro- 
prietor of the Occidental Horse Exchange at 246 
Third street, in this city, sold at auction ten thor- 
oughbred horses, the property of W. B. Sink Jr., the 
well known turfman. The sale was one of the most 
successful held in this city for years and good prices 
were obtained. Mr. Sink will leave soon for France, 
where he has accepted a position to train and manage 
a large stable of horses. Mr. Lay ng engaged for his 
auctioneer at this sale Col. William Riley, known to 
every horseman who followg the Grand Circuit as 
"silver voiced Bill" Riley, who sells the auction pools 
all through that great circuit of harness racing, and 
who made a most favorable impression on this, his 
first appearance on the block in California. The 
prices obtained for the horses were as follows: 

The Mist, b f, 1902, by Magnet-Tenebrae, to H. 
Hammond for $2300. 

T. J. Cox, b c, 1901, by Libertine-Grace S., to J. C. 
Murray for $500. 

Impromptu, b g, 1898, by Crescendo-Amida, to J. 
W. Painter for $225. 

St. Winifrede, ch f, 1900, by St. Carlo-Santa Cruz, 
to J. W. Painter for $1100. 

Wolhurst, b g, 1894, by Ventilator-Nutbrown, to 
D. Anthony for $450. 

Glendenning, ch g by St. Carlo-Glenlivet, to H. 
Hammond for $1,550. 

Rose Farr, ch f, 1901, by imp. Crighton-Sevens, to 
F. G. Reynolds for $525.

Wiggins, b f, 1901, by Sam Lucas-Callatine, to Mc- 
Allister & Co. for $925. 

The Fog, ch c by Magnet-Tenbrao, to "Boots" 
Durnoll for $2^00. 



Kinney Lou 2:07 3-4. 

Now that McKinney 2:11J has gone from California 
breeders are beginning to realize the value of his 
blood, and the desire to own a ton or a daughter of 
the great sire has caused every one of his get offered 
for sale to be snapped up quickly. McKinney is a 
great horse, but if there is any such tbingas improve- 
ment in breeding, why should not one of his sons 
prove much greater than he? 

Thei'e will be standing for service at San Jose this 
year, for a short season ending May 1st, the stallion 
Kinney Lou 2:07j, owned by Budd Doble, the re- 
nowned reinsman who piloted to world's records Dex- 
ter, Goldsmith Maid and Nancy Hanks. Mr. Doble 
purchased Kinney Lou two years ago, and last year 
campaigned the horse on the Grand Circuit. He 
closed the season winner of $11,450 and holding a rec- 
ord of 2:07i, made in the lecond heat of a hotly con- 
tested race. During the season Kinney Lou won six 
heats in better than 2:10, and although a sick horse 
part of the time gained a reputation of being as game 
as the gameet that ever fought for first place under 




A >uii of Kinney l.ou— Foaled I^IO^;, 

the wire. When it is considered that of all the nu- 
merous band of trotters that were out for the money 
in 1903 but six won upwards of $11,000, the great 
showing made by this brown son of McKinney is 
apparent. It is Mr. Doble's intention to again try 
conclusions with the fastest trottere on the Grand 
Circuit this year, and for that reason Kinney Lou's 
stud season will be limited to a dozen mares and will 
end May 1st. 

This stallion was bred for a trotter and on breeding 
alone no horse is more entitled to be one. His sire 
McKinney we all know about. He is the greatest 
sire of his age that has yet been produced. He has 
54 in the 2:30 list and of these fifty per cent are in the 
2:15 list. This alone is a wonderful showing but he 
enjoys another distinction — he has five trotters in 
the 2:10 list, which is more than any other stallion 
has of whatever age. To be the champion sire of 2:10 
trotters at sixteen years of age entitles McKinney to 
the honor of champion trotting sire without a ques- 
tion. So much for the sire of McKinney Lou. 

The dam of Kinney Lou is that famous game old 
race mare Mary Lou 2:17, bred by the late J. L. Mc- 
Cord of Sacramento. She is remembered by every 
horseman who attended the meetings on the California 
circuit twelve or fifteen years ago. She was a great 
winner in her day and the race was never too long for 
her. Mary Lou was an own sister to the famous 
trotter Shylock 2:15J and to that well known pacer 
Ned Winslow 2:12i. It was a game family clear 
through. The dam of Mary Lou, Shylock and Ned 
Winslow was Brown Jenny, the great broodmare by 
Dave Hill Jr. and the grandam was by Black Hawk 
767. Through these two stallions McKinney Lou gets 
two strains of the best Morgan blood ever brought to 
this State and intelligent breeders hold it in high 
favor. The sire of Mary Lou was Tom Benton 15705 
that was by Senator Stanford 's gieat broodmare sire 
Gen. Benton out of Nelly Patchen, a daughter of Geo. 
M. Patchen Jr. 31. Great speed and gameness come 
through these lines. Tabulate Kinney Lou's pedi- 
gree back four crosses and there will be fouud racing 
and producing families on both sides and in every 
branch. Mr. Doble has put Kinney Lou's fee at $100 
for the season and quite a number of mares have 
already be»n booked. 

The oldest of Kenney Lou's get are two years old. 
He was bred to but a very few that year and the fol- 
lowing year served fifteen mares up to the time Mr. 
Doble bought him and took him east. There are 
eleven yearlings, the result of that Feason's services. 
All his colts are much like him. They are bays or 
browns and in size, conformation and disposition a 
credit to any horse. 



An English Opinion. 

In a late issue of the London Live Stock Journal, 
appeared the following in regard to the recent wit- 
ning of a first prize at the New York Horse Show by 
Forest King: 

"The news that has reached this country by cabU- 
gram to the effect that Forest King, driven by his 
new owner, Mr. Moore, has taken first prize in single 
harness at New York show, defeating, among others, 
the crack Lord Brilliant, should instill courage into 
the hearts of hackney breeders on this side of the 
Atlantic. No doubt Forest King is quite an ex- 
ceptional mover, and with one exception, namely, 
when he went down before Heathfield Squire last 
autumn at Cardiff show, he possessed an unbeaten 
record as a harness horse. The fact of his great 
achievements in this country having been so numer- 
ous, may therefore induce some people to say, "Oh I 
Forest King was an exceptional horse." So no doubt 
he was, and so is Lord Brilliant, whom he beat; acd 
consequently. New York being the leading harrefs 
horse show of America, we are entitled to claim that 
the best English horse— a full-blooded hackney, by 
the way — can beat the best of the Americans. 

It is perfectly permissible, I should say, to carry 
the argument a little further, and to suggest that as 
our best can beat their best on their own ground, it 
is highly probable that our other topsawyers can 
bold their own with the American horses. A New 
York champion, Von Harbinger, has done very well 
in the show ring since he landed on these shores some 
years ago, but his successes, when pitted against our 
crack animals, have not been so conspicuous as to 
justify our breeders being afraid of competing any- 
where against the best horses of America or elst- 
where. The victory of Forest King, moreover, has 
proved a contention of mine, which I am very glsd 
to see corroborated by such an emphatic and practical 
illustration, namely, that English horses will get as 
much fair play meted out to them in America, and 
judged by American judges, as they receive in Eng- 
land with one of their own countrymen in the ring. 
How the idea got about that there was more prejudice 
rampant in America than here I could never under- 
stand, for both observation and experience have con- 
vinced me of the fallacy of the impression. 

At all events, it is to be hoped that now English 
hackneymen and others who exhibit horscF, atd who 
are influenced by patriotic motives, will be induced 
to arrange a friendly invasion of American fhowg and 
ascertain the strength of the enemy upon his own 
ground. In the case of the hackney, it is most 
desirable that something should be done in that 
direction, for in spite of the plucky stand that is 
being made by its transatlantic admirers, the breed 
is not making the progress in America that it should. 
Not many weeks ago, a friend residing near New 
York, in writing to me, said: "The hackney mtn are 
being swamped out of the field in the States, not be- 
cause the horse is not good enough to hold his own, 
but because his enemies are so numerous and his 
friends so few. The public here are about sick of 
seeing the same horses out every year, and unless 
some new blood is introduced, just for the sake of 
variety, popular interest in the breed will die out." 
All this seems so true that it would be a work of 
supererogation to enlarge upon it; but surely tte 
victory of Forest King should accomplish a great 
deal in the way of reviving the po]^ularity of the 
hackney in the States. 

It must, at all events, be a very bitter pill for the 
hackney phobes of both countries to have to swallow, 
and no doubt attempts will be made to explain it 
away. Deeds, however, are always more powerful 
than words, and the fact will always remain that a 
pure-bred hackney has beaten the cracks of Ameiica 
in single harness at New York show. 



Polo Dates are Changed. 

There is every assurance that the tournaments to 
be held this spring by the California Polo and Pony 
Racing Association will mark a new era in these 
sports in this State, and be the most successful ever 
held on this Coast. A change of dates has recently 
been announced and it is now decided that the meet 
ai Del Monte will be held from February 18th to 22d 
inclusive, and at Burlingame from February 26th to 
29tb inclusive. All entries for the events to be decided 
at these meets will close on February 14th. At both 
places the program will consist of polo and pony 
racing on alternate days and the handsome trophies 
already arranged for will attract a very large number 
of entries. Owing to the importance of these meets, 
there will be great rivalry among the contestants, 
who are already casting about for the best ponies to 
be found, and there is a demand for both racing and 
polo ponies of quality that cannot be supplied. 



For all kinds of weather there is no drink like 
Jackson's Napa Soda — plain or in a lemonade.

Payments in Occident Stakes. 

Acting Secretary L. K. Miller o( the California 
State Agricultural Society sends us the following lists 
of foals on which payments have been made in the 
Occident Stakes of 1905 and 1!K)<>. There are >.)7 en- 
tries in the stake of 190«>, which Is for the foals of lt)03. 
This is a splendid showing, especially as both Palo 
Alto Stock Farm and the Jesse D. Carr estate made 
no entries, while in former years they made four or 
five each.

A Handsome Horse. 

On the front page of our Issue this week is a phot> 
engraving of the stallion Mahomet, owned by Mr. A. 
C. Dietz, proprietor of the P'erndale Ranch, Santa 
Paula. Cal. Mahomet is one of a pair that .Mr. DleU 
Is driving as a road Ifam. Thoy are full brothers 
six and four years old, aro both pacerr, and so near 
alike ihat the casual observer has difficulty in lelliog 
them apart. .Mr. Diolz, who has long been a breeder 
of trotting and pacing horses, and has owned many 
goods ones, has been cxperimentiog for the pa*t 
fifteen years in breeding for color, and has finally 
succeeded In pleasing his ambition. Some years ago 
he purchased. In Napa county, three partl-color< d 
mares, that were said by their owner to have been 
sired by an Arabian stallion. One of tbr»e mares had 
taken the prize at the fair as the best saddle animal 
and the others were one and two years old. One died 
before beli,g put to breeding. Of the others one wss 
black and white, and the youngest bay and white and 
a pacer. Their dam was of Whipples Hambletonian 
blood, dark bay or brown. The dam of Mahome't Is 
the l>ay and white mare. Mr. Dietz says; "Mahomet 
and his brother Arab are so near alike that it takes 
close inspection to detect the difference. They have 
most perfect heads, broad and with more intflligrnce 
than any horse I ever saw. They have the finest, 
softest skin, with hair like satin. They were both 
sired by Longworth 2:Ht, son of Sidney and sire of 
Alfred C. 2:12} and P:i Moro 2:1.1}. There is probably 
no such team In the I'nited States They have most 
perfect legs and feet and Indicate the legs of a deer. 
The black and white mare, full sister to the dam, was 
bred to Mahomet, the oldest of the pair, and pro- 
duced a pure white colt with white eyes and white 
hoofs. Unfortunately this colt died from an accident. " 



Something About Atbalie. 

Grattan, that interesting writer on harness horre 
affairs, writes as follows in the last Ktnturkii Stork 
Farm: 

In the course of his stallion announcement, Mr. 
George L. Warlow, Fresno, Cal.. makes a prediction 
that is decidedly interesting and, in all probability, not 
much out of line despite the task It sets before the 
gentleman, who says: "Athalie Is but (sixteen years old, 
and if she lives to be twenty I will make her the 
greatestbroodmareln the world as a speed producer." 
Atbalie was bred in Kentucky, at Jacksonville, by H. 
C. Stone, who sold her to Uowerman Rros., from 
whom she passed to Mr. Warlow, then a resident of 
the State of Illinois. It is stated in the register that 
her second dam's breeding is not established. Hut 
the 'S'ear Book gives the breeding; of her Fentational 
yearling son as "dam Atbalie by Harkaway 11808, 
second dam by Alcalde 103." And that is her breed- 
ing. Atbalie has produced six standard perfoinier^; 
the trotters Athanlo 2:10, Atbavls 2:18^, Athablo 
2:241 and Athadon, yearling, 2:27; the pacers Ira 
2:10J and Athnio 2:14J. Athanlo took his record In this 
country while a member of the Village P'arm stable 
and was then sold to parties in P'.urope. There he 
was champion for at least one season, defeating the 
best trotters raced in Austria. He is the sire of The 
Aristocrat 2:12, pacing, record made this year. Atha- 
don Is the sire of Sue 2:l;iJ, Llsterlne 2:13} and five 
others. There Is no telling what Mr. Warlow has up 
his sleeve, but it looks as i f Athalie's 2:10 list Is get- 
ting ready to increase to about four, and if she con- 
tinues to th row speed with the same uniformity that 
has marked her past efforts in that direction she will 
pass Beautiful Bells, who is at the top with eleven 
performers. They are all trotters, but the fastest is 
Belleflower with a mark of 2:12^, while Athalie already 
has to her credit a 2:10 trotter. Harkaway, sire of 
Athalie, was sired by Strathmore 4(tH, and his dam 
was by Basil Duke, second dam by Imp. Gleneoe. 
Taking It all In all Athalie has a lot of goed blood, 
but from the standpoint of the standard she is not 
very well bred. But she has done something, In fact 
has accomplished a great deal, so that whatever else 
may bo said about It she needs no one to offer apolo- 
gies for any la',k of ancestors with pedigrees In the 
register. " 

Board of Appeals Meeting. 

San FRANfisro, Cal., January 20, 1904. 
A moe>tlng of the I'acific District Board of Appeals 
of the National Trotting Association will be held at

advertisement. 



The Los Angeles Driving Club will hold an after- 
noon of matinee racing to-day. 



It is now reported that the blind stallion Rythmic 
2:00^ will go to the auction block. 



Bonnie Direct 2:05t is certain to be a great sire. 
His colts show more finish than those of any other 
son of Direct and they all have speed. 



Bay Leaf by Princess, dam by New York, sold at 
auction once for $30, is the dam of Pat Ford 2:lf)}, 
and Josie Aegon 2:17J, new ones for 1903. 



Bayswater Wilkes is now located at Woodland. He 
has some of the best looking colts in Yolo county that 
have ever been seen there and will get a good patron- 
age this year. 

The twenty-second biennial congress of the mem- 
bers of the National Trotting Association will con- 
vene at the Murray Hill Hotel on Wednesday, Feb- 
ruary 10, 1SI04. 

The stallion Don Fallis, trial 2:16, is offered for sale 
by an advertiser. Don Fallis is a horse of good siz« 
and handsome proportions and has good earning 
capacity in the stud. 

Joe Corey, who recently removed from Vallejo to 
Pleasanton with his string of horses, is training a 
colt called Spinnaker that is by Gaff Topsail out of 
Easter D., and is a very fast youngster. 



There will be three harness races on the Speedway 
in GoldenGate Park, Sunday, beginningat 11 o'clock. 
Tbecoatests will be between horses owned by mem- 
bers of the San Francisco Driving Club. 



Trainer Frank Bogash, of Ft. Wayne, Ind., expects 
to go down the Grand Circuit with a good stable in 
1904 for Spy Run Farm which will contain nothing 
that is not by their stallion Atlantic King 2:09|. 



The get of Nutwood Wilkes that are entered in the 
three year old stakes this year will make quite a 
showing if no accidents happen them. We hear of 
several that are showing remarkable speed already. 



A. H. Anderson presents his advertisement in this 
issue. He is a live stock auctioneer and will conduct 
a general auction business in this city or in any part 
of the State. He has a branch office at Sacramento. 



The five-year-old gelding Don Z. by Stam B , dam 
by Lottery, that Mr. J. M. Hackett, of Rocklin, Cal., 
bred and raised and is now owned by Mr. J. D. 
Springer, of Pleasanton, is one of the good green 
trotting prospects of the year. 



By some accident the program for the Pleasanton 
meeting failed to reach us this week, but will doubt- 
less be in time for publication in our next issue. The 
classes will be nearly the same as thn Breeders meet- 
ing and the purses range from $100 to $1000. 



llosebud by General Washington, dam Goldsmith 
Maid 2:14, is entitled to a place in the list of brood- 
mares that have produced four or more trotters that 
have secured standard records. Her four are Regy 
2:26^, Rose Direct 2:29^, Rose Worthy 2:29J, Artus 
2:29 J. 

M. J. Zahner, who is training a string of horses at 
Pleasanton, has Just received the pacing mare Maud 
W. by Waldstein from Alton, Humboldt county, and 
will train her for the circuit this year. Mr. Zahner 
Axpects several more horses from Humboldt county 
shortly. 

An advertisement was inserted in the Bkeeder 
AND Sportsmen recently in which a McKinney colt 
was offered for sale. Among answers to the same re- 
ceived within a couple of weeks was one from a party 
in Winnipeg, Ontario, and another from one in New 
Orleans. 



Of the twenty-six new 2:10 performers ior 1903, six 
of them came from Scott Hudson's stable. Hudson 
Is the only driver that has won two $20,000 stakes, 
the Nutmeg Stakes, $20,000, and the Bonner Memor- 
ial, $20,000. Hudson took up about a dozen of hii 
horses January 1st. 

Coney 2:02 is now owned by Mr. H. B. Allen, of 
Kansas City, Missouri, who purchased McKlnney's 
fastest performer recently while on a trip to New 
York. It is said that Coney will be driven in some of 
the free for all races on the half-mile tracks this 
year by Mr. Allen's wife. 



It pays to breed good ones. R. P. Lathrop, the hay 
merchant of Hollister, bought at the Santa Rosa 
Stock Farm sale June 23, 1903, for $140, the chestnut 
mare Diva by Piedmont 2:17J with a colt at her side 
by L. W. Russell, he by Stamboul, dam By By by 
Nutwood. Mr. Lathrop has just sold the colt to 
Moody Brothers of Elko. Nevada, for $200. The colt 
now is in the hands of Jo Sanches at Hollister, and 
shows great promise. He is level headed and a square 
trotter. He will be carefully handled and later taken 
to Elko, and be used in the stud. 



Thos. Roaan, proprietor of the Pleasanton track, 
came down to Oakland this week and purchased an 
additional 40,000 feet of lumber to build more stalls 
and make other improvements. Mr. Ronan is finding 
it rather difficult to keep up with the demand for 
stalls but is doing his best. 



The Rural Siiirit says "Henry Helman owns a year- 
ling colt by Pete Williams' stallion Monterey that he 
considers a wonder at the trot." Mr. Payne Shafter 
of Olema, Marin county, was in the Bkeeuek and 
Sportsman office last week and has the same story 
to tell." The young Montereys are all right 



C. W. Welby, owner of the fast young pacing stal- 
lion 2:14} by Bay Bird, has taken the horse to Oregon 
and will make the season of 1904 with him at Irving- 
ton track, Portland. There is no better bred stallion 
on the Coast than Yukon. His dam is by Algona and 
his second dam a full sister to Beautiful Bells. 



Scott Hudson and Harry Benedict are jogging 
Twinkle 2:051; Guy Fortune 2:11}; Dr. Madara 2:08; 
Tertimin 2:24A, and others preparatory to sorting 
them over for the coming campaign, i'ertimin has 
paced well below 2:10 in several races. It will be in- 
teresting to note Twinkle's showing after a year's let 
up- 



George Ramage, who is training a few horses at 
Pleasanton, among them a full sister and brother, 
two and three years oid by Sidney Dillon, has to stop 
nearly every day and answer the question as to 
whether either is for sale. The gelding is just about 
the cleanest gaited trotter that steps over the 
Pleasanton track. 

One of the best bred youngsters in California is the 
stallion Alta Vista that is in J. R. Albertson's string 
at Pleasanton. He is by McKinney out of the great 
race mare Expressive 2:12J by Electioneer. He is a 
big handsome four-year-old and will be trained for 
the races and a record this year. He should make a 
great stock horse. 

At the convention of the Cycle State Board of 
Trade held in Oakland on Wednesday evening of 
this week, W. J. Keaney, the well known sulky builder 
of this city, was elected President of the Board for 
the third term. After his election the members of 
the Board presented Mr. Kenney with a handsome 
gold watob and chain. 



George Leavitt, the Boston horseman, says that 
the great broodmare Maggie H. by Homer, should be 
given credit for the mare Gayety Girl 2:15', by Red 
Wilkes. The Year Book does not give the breeding 
of her dam, but Mr. Leavitt, who purchased the 
mare in Kentucky, says that he is confident that the 
breeding given above is correct. 



Mr. Henry Scott, of San Jose, has a two-year-old 
by Owyhee 2:11, out of the producing mare Primrose 
by Sidney, that is one of the most promising young 
trotters in Santa Clara county. Last year as a 
yearling he trotted a quarter in 40 seconds after 
being hitched up a few times. He will be put in train- 
ing again this year for a short time. 



J. B. Stetson of Boise, Idaho, will move to Port- 
land, Oregon, to train his horses and has engaged 
stalls at Irvington track. He has in his string that 
good four year old Swift B. by Stam B, that took a 
record of 2:16} last year as a three-year-old, Oregon 
Maid 2:14:i, Del Norte (2) 2:24i, Monroe S. 2:13}, Geta- 
way 2:24} and several horses without records. 



Birdman, the roan three-year-old colt by Antrim 
out of Birdie by Jay Bird, that is owned by Geo. A. 
Kelly of Pleasanton, promises to be one of the good 
colt trotters of the year. Mr. Kelly's colt Bonnie 
McK. by McKinney out of Bonsilene 2:14} is another 
good prospect. This is a wonderfully well bred fellow 
as hid second dam is Bon Bon, the dam of Bonnie 
Direct 2:05}. 

The McCarty sale, to be held at Portland, March 
1st, 2d and 3d, is attracting great attention all 
through the Northwest and a number of high class 
horses have already been consigned to it. Well bred 
California horses should bring good money at this 
■ale and we advise owners to open correspondence 
with J. L. McCarthy & Son, Room 8, Hamilton Build- 
ing, Portland, in regard to consignment. 



L. V. Harkneas will own as many broodmares at 
Walnut Hall Farm, if he keeps collecting, as there 
ever were at Palo Alto, Recently he secured ten 
matrons, paying therefore $11,000, from F. M. Buck, 
Fairbault, Minn. Among them are the dam of Lady 
Constantine 2 12A, the dam of Clovla 2:]3J; Krem 
Marie 2:16} and some other royally bred and record 
mares. He now owns about 200 broodmares. 



Manager G. A. Wahlgreen of the Overland track, 
Denver, Col., reports the outlook for the racing season 
in Colorado as most encouraging. The regular meet- 
ing will commence at Overland Park on June 18th 
and conclude on July 4th. There will be two harness 
and five running races each day, and two $1500 and 
six $1000 stakes for trotters and pacers will be an- 
nounced soon. The regular purses will be .$500 each. 



Many of the old time Morgans were long-lived 
horses, and some of the present day seem to have 
inherited the qualities upon which longevity depends. 
We learn from the successful starting judge James 
Walker, of Cold water, Mich., that his Morgan stal- 
lion. Royal Fearnaught, now 31 years old, is hale, 
hearty, vigorous and frisky. His grandsire. Young 
Morrill 2:31, lived to be 32 years old. — American Horse 
Breeder, 



[January 23, 1904 



The mare Explosion by Steinway, dam Flash by 
Egmont, that Henry Dunlap is training at Pkasan- 
ton, is showing lots of speed. All the produce of 
Flash are afflicted with the same disease. Mr. T. J. 
Crowley, of this city, purchased for a friend in San 
Francisco a year ago at Oakwood Park Farm a geld- 
ing by Chas. Derby, out of Flash, that is now used 
as a road horse and can show a quarter close to 30 
seconds without training. 



Henry H. Helman, who came down from Portland, 
Oregon, to attend the final Palo Alto sale, tells us 
that he has sold his promising green trotter Rov 
Benton to Ed Dyer of Spokane for $2000. Roy Ben- 
ton is by Benton Boy and his dam is Antera by 
Anteeo. With very little work last spring Hoy Ben- 
ton worked a mile in 2:18 and trotted quarters fast 
enough to assure Mr. Helman that he is a 2:10 trotter. 
He will be trained this year by Lou Childs and raced 
on the North Pacific Circuit. 



Representatives of the Canadian Horse Breeders 
Association waited upon the government last week 
and urged that, in the interest of pure-bred stock, 
the customs duty on horses entering Canada from the 
United States be raised to $.30 on animals of the value 
of $1,50 and under. The association claims that in- 
ferior horses are brought in on spurious pedigrees 
and thus work great harm to native breeds. A 
meeting of the representatives of live stock inteiests 
has been called by the government, and the date is 
set for March at Ottawa. 



The proprietor of the Breeder and Sportsman 
received a letter this week from a relative "way down 
in Maine," who says that at the town of Gardner, a 
mile track has been scraped on the ice of the Kenne- 
bec river, and that racing is to he held during the 
winter. The prizes are 50 bushels of oats for the first 
horse, 25 bushels for thesecond and 10 bushels for the 
third. Horses with speed can evidently earn their 
oats in Maine even in the colde t weather. 



Willis Parker of Stockton, Cal., who has bred and 
owned quite a number of standard trotters, visited 
his old home in Maine a few weeks ago and while in 
Waterville met C. H. Nelson, breeder and owner of 
the stallion Nelson 2:09, who invited him to take a 
ride behind the old champion. Although 22 years 
old this spring the son of Young Rolfe stepped out 
like a horse in training and Mr. Parker says ne seems 
to have as much speed as he ever did when allowed to 
brush a short distance and certainly enjoys it. 



Mr. E. D. Dudley of Dixon, Solano county, pur- 
chased at the recent Palo Alto sale the yearling 
chestnut colt by Nutwood Wilkes 2:162, dam Palita 
by Palo Alto 2:08J, second dam P^lsie by Gen. Benton, 
third dam Elaine by Messenger Duroc and fourth 
dam Green Mountain Maid, dam of Electioneer. Mr. 
Dudley has claimed the name Palite for this colt, 
which was one of the best bargains of the sale as well 
as one of the best bred colts in this country or any 
other. Palite should make a great stock horse, as he 
is a grand individual. 

Several weeks ago when the Earl of Lonsdale was 
visiting San Francisco, he called at the Harness and 
Saddlery depot of the Jepsen Bros. Company and 
purchased two fine California hair bridles at 875 
each, one of which he intends to present to Queen 
Alexandra. The Earl also purchased from the same 
ffrm a wbole wagon load of articles of California 
manufacturre consisting of silver bits, spurs, rawhide 
bridles, riatas, quirts, hair ropes, several saddles and 
many other things with which to please and astonish 
his friends when he reaches home. 



Earl Medium, one of the successful sons of Happy 
Medium, died recently, the property of R. E. God- 
dard, Burgin, Ky., who purchased him early in 1903. 
Though never 80 situated that he was in the way of 
making a reputation, Earl Medium sired six standard 
performers, of which five beat 2:20 and three had 
records better than 2:15, as follows: Maybud 2:13}, 
Kanawha Star 2:14}, Tom Martin 2:14}, all pacers. 
He was bred at Fairlawn, and was out of the Almont 
mare Francesca, who also produced I. Direct 2:12i, 
Sable Frances 2:15}, and Guvcisca 2:26. 



The horses which Mr. Lou Robertson of Auckland 
purchased in Kentucky last fall and shipped to Auck- 
land from this city December 31st, were a six-year- 
old stallion by Bow Bells, dam Russia 2:29; two-year- 
old stallion by Birchwood, dam Marks Maid; five- 
year-old mare Bodeau by Bow Bells dam Myrth by 
The King; three-year-old mare by Heir at Law, dam 
Conway: two-year-old mare by Birchwood, di'm Vera 
Capel. While there were no very striking individuals 
in this lot, they wereall well bred and will be valuable 
additions to the trotting stock of the antipodes. 



J. Y. Gatcomb, former partner of Scott Hudson,, 
now located at his home in Concord, N. H , has pur- 
chased at a reputed price of $8,000 from R. H. Plant, 
Macon, Ga., the three year old bay filly Grace Bond 
bv The Bondsman, dam Grace Boyd by Ashland 
Wilkes 2:17}. Grace Bond won the two year old 
division of the Kentucky Futurity last year, beating 
Bessie Benyon, Alta Axworthy, Bequeath, The Her- 
mit, Alice Edgar, and California Cresceus. She took 
a mark in that race of 2:17iJ. She also won the Lex- 
ington stakes, beating about the same field, and scor- 
ing a mark, her present record of 2:14}. Her only 
defaat was in the Horse Review purse at Oakley, 
where she won the first heat in 2:14^, and was 
defeated by Alta Axworthy, who she later defeated 
in the Futurity. From the manner in which she won 
her stake engagements last year, many predict that 
she will repeat Fereno's record by winning also the 
three year old division of the Kentucky Futurity this 
year.

Interfering, Striking, Cutting or Brushing in 
Horses. 



Of the many faults, accidents or habits to which 
horseflesh is heir, "interfering" is one of the most 
troublesome. Fortunately, however, it is one that 
admits of a large measure of prevention, and the ill- 
effects of it can be to a very considerable extent over- 
■ come. Id the consideration of this subject one of the 
most important points to thoroughly study is the 
causes. Of the somewhat numerous inlluences which 
contribute to this fault, defective conformation is a 
very important one in predisposing to it. It is im- 
portant from the fact that cases that are largely the 
result of defective formation are the most diflicult to 
successfully cope with. A horse of perfect formation 
of limbs should raise, advance and put down his feet 
approximately in a straight line in the act of progres- 
sion, in the walk or trot. Any deviation inwards 
from the straight line renders a horse liable to strike 
if any exciting cause is brought into operation. 

Narrow horses, particularly if they are leggy, are 
apt to go close both behind and in front, and conse- 
quently to " brush." Those that "toe out, "either in 
the hind or fore extremities, usually wind inwards in 
progression, and are conseiiuently apt to interfere. 
In fact, there is no formation of limb that so strongly 
predisposes to this fault, in its most aggravated forna, 
as the defect just mentioned. Horses as a rule that 
"toe in" in the fore limbs wind outwards, and conse- 
quently show no disposition to "brush." In such 
cases the "turning in" of the toes is due to the posi- 
tion in which the leg is fixed onto Ihe body. It is d'le 
to the back part of the leg showing a tendency to 
turn outwards from the body. This can be most 
clearly observed at the elbow in the front leg where 
tne point inclines outwards. "Toeing in, " however, 
is not alwars the result of a malposition of the limb 
throughout, for sometimes the deformity is confined 
to that portion of it from the fetlock down, consti- 
tuting what might be called a "club foot." This for- 
mation often predisposes to "striking" to a marked 
degree, as in progression the foot comes very close to 
the opposite limb. In spite of the predisposition 
many horses show to interfering. from defective for- 
mation, such animals may be seen working month 
after month without inflicting any injury to them- 
selves. 

Horses that are in good condition, well balanced in 
going, and that have complete power of co-ordinating 
the movements of their limbs, are the ones that are 
likely to escape the not infrequent consequences of 
defective formation of limb. The exciting causes of 
interfering are numerous, but the one one hears most 
frequently spoken of is defective shoeing, and it is no 
doubt sometimes a cause, but not nearly so frequently 
as is sometimes supposed. The unfortunate sboer is 
frequently maligned for what is no fault of his. It 
does not matter how some horses areshod, or whether 
they areshod or not, they will interfere under some 
circumstances. 

The best that we can do in the way of shoeing is to 
use a good rational shoe, properly applied on a suit- 
ably prepared foot. Too heavy a shoe will sometimes 
act as a cause from the excessive weight, taxing tbe 
muscular control of the limb unduly, so that during 
quick movements and sharp turns "striking" is par- 
ticularly apt to occur. Leaving the hoofs too large 
is sometimes a cause, from the simple consequence of 
its bringing tbe hoof closer to the opposite leg. Not 
only that, but tbe Increased length of the toe result- 
ing from too large a hoof intensifies the tendency to 
"cut' 

The first step, then, in the attempt to prevent 
striking, is to reduce the wall to reasonable dimen- 
sioDs with the rasp. Defects of the form and direc- 
tion of hoof may sometimes be remedied in a measure; 
as, for instance, take a horse that "toes out," ar d 
shorten the outer part of the toe to a greater extent 
than the inner, the tendency is not only to correct 
the unsightlinesB of the deformity, butalsoto remedy 
in a measure its ill-consequence in progression. The 
same may be done, but just in the opposite way, in 
horses which "toe in." In the bind legs it is gener- 
ally the inner part of the tee of tbe hoof that inflicts 
the injury. This can be rasped so as to reduce its 
convex form to an approaoh to a straight line with 
the rasp, which lessens somewhat the danger. The 
shoe should be of reasonable weight (strong enough 
to keep it from breaking) and set in as much ai< possi- 
ble on the inside without running too much risk of 
bruising the sole. Have the inside branch of the 
shoe narrow and rounded, so that there will be as 
little danger of inflicting injury as possible. The 
nails may also be withheld from the inside of the toe, 
80 that no injury may be done from the clinches. It 
is a good plan to also shorten the inside of the hoof 
more than the outside, and compensate for this by 
deepening the inside branch of the shoe, so as to keep 
the foot level and have even bearing. The inside 



branch of the shoe may bo made almoststralght from 
the toe back, and the hoof made to correspond pretty 
much in form. The following out of this plan of 
shoeing will minimize the likelihood of injury being 
done by striking. 

The weighting of the shoo on the outside Is often 
recommended by having the outer branch consider- 
ably heavier than the inner one, with the idea that 
the weight on the outside makes a horse go wider. 
This would, no doubt, be the tendency, and provid- 
ing it does not increase the weight of the shoe too 
much there is no objection to it. 

Another plan sometimes followed is to raise the in- 
side of the foot higher than the outside, with the idea 
that the fetlock of the leg on the ground will be 
thrown oufvards, and thus be more likely to escape 
injury from the opposite foot. This plan is irrational, 
from the fact that it causes a horse to tread unevenly, 
and thus tend to result in injury to some other part 
of the leg, disturbing the relations of the various 
parts that maKe up the weight-bearing column. 

In the front legs a three-cjuartor shoe is sometimes 
used, the shoe only coming half way round on the in. 
side and not covering the ground surface of the inner 
quarter. The difficulty about this plan is getting the 
shoe so applied that all the wall will boar Its normal 
amount of weight. It doesn't do to leave the inner 
quarter unsupported, for in that case there will be 
tilting of the leg inwards when the foot is put on the 
ground, or, in other words, uneven treading, with 
the ill consequences already explained. 

Charlier shoes sometimesdo very well and are much 
safer than a three-quarter shoe. This is a light, 
narrow webbed shoe, that only comes half way round 
on either side of the hoof and is sunken in to a groove 
cut out of the plantar surface of the wall, so that the 
lower surface of it is just Hush with the quarters that 
are not grooved out. By this plan there is an even 
bearing surface all round the hoof, a light shoe, and 
one no more likely to cause injury to the opposite leg 
than the natuk-al unshod hoof. The drawback about 
this shoe for general use on hard roads is that it has 
not strength enough to form a substantial stay to the 
hoof. It also lessens the action, and horses are apt 
to go sore with them on very hard roads. 

It is questionable if we have a much better device 
for shoeing interfering horses than the rubber pads 
now so generally in use in cities. Their use has a 
tendency to prevent interfering by virtue of their 
eflfect in preventing slipping, which is one of the ex- 
citing causes of this trouble. In the hind legs where 
"cutting" Is most usual, the inner and back part of 
the fetlock is the common seat of injury. Occasionally 
in horses with a good deal of hock action they will 
strike the leg higher up, and in very low, close going 
horses the inside of the coronet is scraped. 

In the front legs the injury may be anywhere from 
the fetlock to the knee. When it is high up it 
generally gets thedesignation of speedy cut. Another 
cause of "striking" is ftttigue. It has already been 
pointed out that when a horse has not perfect control 
of his legs he is apt to "brush," so that horses that 
have not had regular work and good feed for a length 
of time, or, in other words, are not in good condition, 
are easily fatigued, and consequently liable to in- 
terfere. 

The uneven footing of rough roads, slippery roads 
or pavements, the swaying of a two-wheeler, are all 
circumstances likely to interfere with a horse's equil- 
ibrium, and conseqiently are not infrequently excit- 
ing causes of "striking." 

Another very fertile exciting cause, particularly in 
cities, and one which, strange to say, is never referred 
to in print, is the influence of discomfort in connectic n 
with the mouth in causing "Interfering. " There is 
nothing that puts a horse out of balance more com- 
pletely than anything wrong with his mouth. Horses 
that cross their jaws, open their mouths, put their 
tongues out, or over their bits, carry their heads side- 
ways, fuss with their bits, slobber, pull, etc., genei • 
rlly have some soreness of the mouth caused by their 
bits, and if they are at all predisposed are very 
apt to "cut " We see examples of this every day in 
cities where dealers get horses from the country that 
have chiefly been used to snaflle bits. They at once 
begin to drive them with curb bits, and they nearly 
all show some discomfort at theohangein the various 
ways already mentioned. In addition to which there is 
"pulling out" and "crowding" in double harness. It 
is very common to S' e a horsecut hislegi badly under 
such circumstances that shows no evidence of ever 
having struck before. The treatment of "Interfering" 
resolves Itself largely into methods of prevention. 
The most Important point is to remove the cause, 
where practicable, and If not, to endeavor to neutral- 
ize Its operation as much as possible. 

If a horse Is In danger of "striking" himself from 
the mouth not being in proper order, or from any ex- 
citing cause remaining Ip operation, protect the part 
or parts with a boot or boots that are likely to be in- 



7 

, jured. If any part is Injured from "cutting" keep 
that part protected until it has entirely recovered 
from elTects of injury. 

In a large majority of cases after a horse Is In good 
condition, his mouth well m de, and he is properly 
shod, there will be no need for boots, unless he is 
likely to bo suhjt-oted to some exciting cause, or unless 
he is markedly predisposed from defective formation.

The 2:15 list is already a large one, containing many 
hundreds of trotters and pacers. Bui the difflculty 
of breeding thorn with any approach to certainty is 
accentuated by an examination of the list under their 
sires. Only seven stallions so far have succeeded in

what a remarkable sire he is.

for a thrifty weanling which is showing signs of dis- 
temper, swelling under the throat: is also troubled

P^'^'ure. Respectfully, J. W. S. 

Answer— As distemper and glanders are somewhat 
similar in their symptoms, and you are within reach 
of a veterinary surgeon, I would advise you to consult 
with one. Glanders is a disease that is very danger- 
ous, being contagious to man, and almost always 
fatal. The general treatment for distemper consists 
of placing the colt in a comfortable, well ventilated, 
but not draughty stall, giving soft nourishing focd, 
poulticing the swollen glands and throa*, and in the 
line part of the day allowing him to stand where the 
sunshines. Blanket him, if the stable is cold. If he 
be discharging from the nose, do not let him drink 
from the same trough, or vessel, that other horses 
drink from until you are sure that he has not got the 
glanders.

Choke Bores, Their Advantages and 
Disadvantages. 

Despite the great advance made within the last 
decade in the science of shotgun ballistics, there is 
still a very great deal to be discovered and explained 
before experts can be said to have thoroughly grasped 
all the laws relating to shooting in the field or at the 
traps. If anything were wanted to prove this, it 
would only be necessary to refer to sporting and ex- 
pert discussion during the last two years, as to what 
really occurs in shooting with a gun that is choke 
bored at the muzzle Choke in a shotgun is an in- 
vention not much more than thirty years old. It is 
still a subject of dispute whether we are indebted for 
its in vention to the United States, or to Mr. W. W. 
Greener, of Birmingham, or to Mr. Pape, of New- 
castle. In his lifetime the late Mr. J. D. Dougall, 
senior, of St. Jamos street, London, accepting the in- 
vention as American in origin, claimed to have been 
the first introducerof the novelty in England. Nevis 
in the Vountri/ (ientlemun states: "We remember his 
relating to us, as we sat in his London sanctum one 
day in the early seventies, how his eldest son, while 
travelling on business in the United States, came 
across a specimen of a choke bore gun there, and was 
80 struck with its shooting powers that he brought 
it home with him to Glasgow and submitted it to his 
father. At that very time, apparently, so far as we 




Pacific Coast Field Trials. 

[By Albert Betz.] 

The twenty-first annual trials of the Pacific Coast 
Field Trials Club were run at Bakersfield, Kern 
county, commencing January 11, 1904. The stakes 
were the Derby, with twenty starters; All-Age with 
nineteen, and Members', with five starters. The 
number of starters in the two former stakes were the 
largest in the history of the club. 

The Derby purse amounted to $625, the largest

served effect of concentrating the pattern of the second, and 20.''o of the purse was divided between the 
pellets discharged from a choked gun; but until re- ' " 

cently it seemed to be assumed as incontrovertible, 
that the direct action of the choke on the pellets 
themselves in the barrel, and before they left the 
muzzle was the true cause of their closer pattern on 
the target. An additional theory has recently been 
added to these others, and one that, as stated by a 
contemporary, seems very reasonable which Is all

pressure of tbealr outside the muzzle, the underneath 
pellets being wedged between those In front, owing to 
the greater pressure on them just before they leave 
the barrel, and thus resulting in a lateral spread. 



owners of the dogs awarded equal third. There being 
but one cup for third place, Messrs. Van Arsdale and 
Keller agreed to toss for the cup, the winner to buy a 
similar cup for the loser. Mr. Keller was the lucky 
man. 

The All-Age purse amounted to $400, the prizes

It Is known that the powder gases travel nearly 
three times as fast as the shot charge on emerging 
from the muzzle and meeting the resistance of the 
air, that resistance being broken to some extent by

In the Members' Stake trophies were awarded to 
first, second and third. 

W. S. Bell of Pittsburg, Pa., judged the trials, and 



the mass of pellets In favor of the traveling gates, showed himself the peer of any judge In America 

There can be no doubt that these fast traveling That his decisions were corect and entirely satisfac-

of this disturbing Influence, not by Its action on the 
shot charge, but on the gas propelling it. That 
result is attempted to be explained in this wise. The 
obstruction of the choke reduces the velocity of the 
shot charge near the muzzle. Thedelayed movement 
of the shot at the choke causes a "piling up" of the 
gases behind the over powder wad, causing these 
gases to rebound backwards against those further 



An Invitation was extended him to do so; and, while 
he expressed the desire to come, it is yet too early to 
announce definitely his ability to be on hand. 

The extreme dryness, on account of lack of rain, 
greatly hampered the dogs, especially the Derby en-

remember, Mr. Pape had accldently hit upon a similar down the barrel, thus momentarily delaying their enough bird work was had to enable the judge to

Thls new theory, In fact, ascribes to "muzzle blast" garif, placed second, sustained his sensational recoid 




principle In boring, which he was engaged in experi- 
menting with and improving, while Mr. Greener was 
similarly working on the same lines in Birmingham. 
Although Mr. Greener then does not claim to have 
Invented choke boring, there can be no question that 
he brought It to perfection, and was the medium of 
popularising the system In this country, having, as 
we all know, beaten all competitors with his choke 
bores at the gun trials of 1(575. in the late seventies 
full choke bored 
pop 
sh 
ch 

full chokes, experienced by game shooters, to shoot 
loo close, and not to the centre. 

Though full chokes became unpopular before the 
eighties In game shooting the discovery of the princi- 
ple of construction has ever since then been invaluable 
to gun makers in giving them that command of 
pattern that previously was more or less dependent 
upon chance In a cylinder gun, even though that 
chance was reduced very materially in the beautifully 
bored guns produced by Manton, Boss, Lancaster, 
Lang, Moore and Purdey, without any idea of choke 
boring as now understood. The driving of game, of 
course, helped the fall of full chokes, even full choke 
In the left barrels, but the principle was merely dor- 
mant during the reaction towards cylinders that 
speedily followed, and it Is carried out in its modified 
form today in the best types of what are now termed 
'Improved cylinders,' Improved by more than a 
suspicion of choke in both barrels, or, at any rate, in 
the left barrel. The King, in truth, is believed to 
[irefer more choke in his left barrel than in his right, 
also an 'Improved cylinder,' equal to the tallest 
pheasant shooting. Choke Is by no means dead, (hen, 
even In the highest quality of driving guns, and It Is 
very much alive and active in the left barrels of the 
cheaper grades of gun, suitable for all round shoot- 
ing." 

Such, then, is the position of choke in shotguns 
for game, giving gunmakers the full command of pat- 
tern Yet to tbls day no one has been able thor- 
oughly to explain the action of the choke as it affects 
the position and arrangement of the pellets leaving 
the muzzle, and their pattern on the manufacturer's 
plate. Kxplanatlons have been attempted, certainly, 
but unfortunately they all differ. They are at best In 
our present stage of ballistic Information mere con- 
jecture, Innocent of proof, untested by actual meas- 
urement, owing to its extremedlffi<;ulty. The attempt 
was made to solve the obscure problem by Mr. R. \V. 
S. (JrltKth, manager of the Schultze Powder Com- 
pany, In his lecture to the Gunmakers' Association, 
on the subject of shotgun patterns. No one had more 
right to speak as an authority on the subject, for Mr. 
Griffith, as Is well known, was the first expert across 
the water, to apply to the shotgun the principles of 
measurement adopted for big guns But on this 
abstruse question of the action of the choke on the 
pellets Mr. Griffith spoke with some hesitation, as 
merely guessing what occurred Inside the barrel from 
the action of the choke on the shot charge, and its 
ascertained results on pattern, of which he had made 
a painstaking and profound study. Other explana- 
tions haveslnce been attempted on that of Mr. Griffith, 
who believed that the direction of the shot was turned 
inwards by the choke. One well known authority in- 
dicated the view that the pellets when stayed by the 
choke of the barrel 



whole movement and letting the shot charge leave 
the muzzle entirely undisturbed by the powder gas 
behind it, or Its pressure on the wadding. This is 
an entire reversal of the theories hitherto current to 
account for the closer shooting of choke bores, as 



charge. It is stated, not unreasonably, that when 
the "muzzle blast" is decreased by a smaller powder 
charge the pattern is Improved In all cases owing to 
there being no Interference with the direct course of 
the pellets In the charge of shot to the target plate. 

It is argued that the very small amount of choke 
in an improved cylinder barrel decreases the "muzzle 
blast" by delaying, as described, the exit of the gases 
from the muzzle, and so getting rid of this upset in- 
fluence with or without the wadding upon the shot 
charge within the first two Inches of travel beyond 
the muzzle. 

There Is little doubt that improved cylinders are 
more popular with our best shots than what is called 
a true cylinder, more subject as the latter may be to 
vagaries in pattern. These vagaries are now put 
down by suggestion to the powder gases emerging 
from the muzzle occasionally overtaking the wadding, 
and thus spreading wide the pattern to such an extent 
as to spoil the shooting on that particular Instance. 

Now, all of this Is very interesting to the keen 
shooter, but, like too many other solutions of shooting 
Droblems, it is not based on absolute evidence leading 
inevitably to one conclusion. The latest view, how- 
ever, ha.s the substance of being not only the most 
Ingenious of all, but on the whole the most likely 
ultimately to be found — squaring with known facts in 
connf-ction with the patterns made by various types of 
shotguns and the latest data as to the behavior of a 
shell load shot from a sporting gun,bothinthe travel 
up the barrel and after it leaves the muzzle of the 
gun. 

If correct, the moral of It all. Is: that an Improved 
cylinder is the best gun, doing away, as it does, with 
the disadvantages of the true cylinder as well as of 
the full choke, both considerable, though entirely 
different in kind. 

English snipe have been plentiful near Point Arena 
recently. Limit bags have been shot daily by the 
lucky sportsmen who were at the Point. 



A homing pigeon was recently shot by a hunter 
near the Napa Soda Springs. The shooter was after 
wild pigeon, which were numerous In the vicinity. 
The bird shot had around one leg a thin silver band, 
upon one side of which was stamped "J 510," upon 
the other the figure of a pigeon. Wild pigeons will 
now and then flock with tame birds, much to the dis- 
content of the latter, but Instances of tame birds con- 
sorting with their wild cousins are somewhat rarely 
recounted.

Dr. A. T. Leonard's Pointer dog Wallace Hruce 
with Alexander Hamilton's Setter dog Lad.v's Lad. 

Monday, January 11, 1H04.— The first brace 
Snaron Boy-Sombra, were cast off at 9:4") a. M , in 
open territory, with fairly good cover, and where 
birds had been located by the ridere. Sombra showed 
best in pace and range, and kept up pace to end of 
the heit. Sharon Boy seemed logy and spiritless. 
Both missed opportunities to point, after birds had 
been driven from trees in which they sought refuge 
after being flushed. Ordered up at 10:40. Sharon 
Boy handled by J. E. Lucas; Sombra by W. B. Coutts. 

Countess Lou-Starlight Jr. — Down at 11, in a field 
east of where former brace was run. Neither showed 
much pace or range, the bitch, however, probably 
having the better of it in that respect. No bird work 
was done, and they were ordered up at 11:.')0. Countess 
Lou handled by Coutts; Starlight Jr. by Lucas. 

Cuba's Cotton wood-Miss Nelson — Down at IL.'in, in 
a field designated by the Judge as the "Cat" field, 
where cover was rank. Shortly after being put down 
Cottonwood flushed a bevy, the birds scatttring, but 
neither dog located, though birds were raised by the 
spectators on ground over which dogs had run. Both 
were good goers, but of restricted range. Up at 12:40. 
Cottonwood bandied by R. M. Dodge; Miss Nelson by 
Lucas. 

Lunch was partaken of at the Gosford Ranch; and 
after a drive of several miles to the "Mule" field, the 
next brace 

Hicn's Bab-Cuba's Glenwood, was cast off at 2:40, 
in good cover and where birds were known to be. 
This was a nice going pair, Bab having the better 
style and, possibly, being wider in range. After 
running some time without finding birds, the railroad 
track was crossed and the first bird work of the day 
was had. Glenwood was first to find, pointing a small 
bevy, and was backed by Bab. Both dogs were 
steady to shot. Glenwood made two more points 
before ordered up, and was steady to shot and wing. 
He clearly excelled in bird work. Bab flushed several 
birds which she should have pointed. Up at 3:25. 
Glenwood handled by Dodge; Bab by Lucas 

Sandlewood not being on the ground the next 
brace 

Glen Rose-Keepsake, were put down at 3:30 on same 
ground. Keepsake is probably the most diminutive 
Setter ever seen in trials, yet, notwithstanding, she 
is fast and rangy. The Pointer, also showed speed, 
style and range, and was the better in bird work, 
although both ran over birds Keepsake was first to 
come to point, but was ordered on by her handler; 
a moment afterwards the birds she had been pointing 
were flushed by spectators. Glen Rose made in all 
three points during the heat and in each instance was 
stead y to either shot or wing. He bad the better of 
tha heat. Up at 4:10. Glen Rose handled by Chas 
Coutts; Keepsake by Babcock. This was the last 
brace of the day. 

TtESDAY, January 12. -Star's Rod-Sandlewood— 
Down at 9:2-5 in good open ground with fine cover. 
Both ranged well, but ran over birds which should 
have been pointed. After running some time Sandle- 
wood came to point, nicely backed by Rod, but no 
■bird was found. Ordered up at 10 Star's Rod 
handled by Coutts; Sandlewood by Lucas. 

Hick's L id-Fly's Pearl— Down at 10:05 Lad was 
best in range and speed, and soon after being cast off 
ranged into tinber which was the last seen of him. 
Pearl's Fly, rather restricted in range, continued on 
to end of beat, and although taken to ground over 
which birds had scattered failed to locate. Up at 
10:45. Hick's Lad handled by Coutts; Fly's Pearl by 
Dodge. 

V'alita-Cuba's Ivywood — Down at 11, on grounds 
not before used. Shortly after being put down the 
riders Hushed a bevy of birds from dense tumble- 
weeds onto open ground with short cover, where 
Valita soon came to point; bird flushed and she was 
stsa I y to wing. Ivywood next pointed on bank of 
roadbed, baclced by Valita; both steady to shot. Ivy- 
wood made two more points, one of which she left 
and bird was later flushed. Both missed opportuni- 
ties. Up at 11:40. Valita, a stylish bitch, was 
handled by Coutts; Ivywood by Dodge. 

Klamath-Frank W. — Cast off in field adjoining 
where last brace bad been worked. Immediately 
after being placed down both took after rabbits and 
it was some time before they could be brought in. 
Aiide from several more rabbit chases nothing was 
done, although toward thelatterend of tbo heat both 
had opportunities on birds. Both ranged well, and 
Klamath is exceptionally stylish. Klamath bandied 
by Babcock; Frank W. by Lucas. A short drive was 
then made to Gosford's ranch and lunch partaken of. 

Wallace Bruce-Lady's Lad — Down at 2 i'. M. A 
nice going pair, ranging well and showing speed, Lad 
biing eipeoially stylish. Both had opportunities on 
birds which had been scattered by spectators and 
were lying in good cover, though no bird work was 
done. Lid twice came to point, no bird in eithor 
case, however, being raised. Brucc» handled by 
Lucas; Lady's Lad by Coutts. 

This was the last brace of first series and Judge 
Bell announced that the following dogs would be 
carried into the second, viz.: Sombra-Cuba's Glen- 
wood; Hick's Bab-Glen Rose; Keepsake-Ivy wood. 

SECOND SERIES. 

Sombra-Cuba's Glen wood— Do wn at 3:10. Both 
dogs ranged well. A bevy of birds was flushed from 
bare ground into a cornfield and along a dry ditch, 
and when dog^ ware carried across to where birds 
were, Glenwood was the first to find, making two 
stylish points on edge of ditch, being steady to shot. 
Sombra also found, was backed by Glenwood, and 
both were steady. Each made several more points. 
Somora Is a very stylish bitch and will no doubt be 
later heard from. Up at 3:55. 



Hick'a Bab-Glen Rose- Cast off at 4:30 in corn field 
where birda had been flushed by spectators before 
brace was put down. Cover fairly good. Glen Rose 
was easily the best of the brace and made one nice, 
steady point, the only bird work of the heat. Many 
birds were flushed by spectators from ground where 
dogs had worked. Seemingly they could not locate. 
Uo at 4:45. 

Keepsake-Cuba's Ivywood — Down at 4:50 in same 
field where former brace worked, later being worked 
across ditch into adjoining fiold where birda had 
flown. Kei'psaku showed host in range, »pei'd and 
atyle, but was outclassed by Ivywood in bird work, 
the latter making no less than five points in the heat 
to the former's one. l!i>th ran over birds and each 
wassomewbat inclined to chase, unless cautioned by 
handler. Up at 5:05. 

Returning to the wagons which bad been loft on 
other side of fence. Judge Bell announced the winners 
as follows: 1st. Stockdale Kennel's Cuba's (ileri wood ; 
2d. Same Kennel's Cuba's Ivywood; Kijual .'Id. 11. 
W. Keller's Sombra: W. W. Van Arsdale'a Keepaakc.

Wednesday, January 13— Harry H. -Pearl's 
Jingle — Down at 9:20. Harry showed groat range, 
speed and style, while the bitch was slow, improving 
in pace and rango toward latter part of heat. Jingle 
was first to find, pointing a bevy which flushed wild, 
she being steady to wing, and scattered in good cover. 
She made four more good points and was steady to 
shot and wing, while Harry H. running over same 
ground was unable to locate. Up at 10. Harry H. 
handled by Coutts; Jingle by Lucas. 

Detroit Joe-Jay M. — Down at 10:10, in large open

tunities on scattered birds but failed to locate. Up at 
10:40. Detroit Joe handled by Babcock; Jay M. by 
Lucas. 

Kilgarif-Oakley 's Pride — Down at 11:05 in alfalfa

treme outer end of field before dogs were brough t into 
cornfield where birds lay. Each dog made two points 
and was steady to wing and shot. Kilgarif showed 
up the better of the two and demonstrattd that he 
had not deteriorated from his Derby form. Up at 
11:35. Kilgarif handled by Coutts; Oakley's Pride by 
Babcock. 

Policy Girl-McCloud Boy — Down at 11:4.'>, in field 
adjoining where last brace had run. Both fast and 
wide rangers. Going down bank of dry ditch Mc- 
Cloud Boy whirled into a snappy bevy point, but was 
a trifle unsteady to shot. The birds flushed into an- 
other field, and although dogs were taken to place 
where birds had been marked, no further point work 
was done. Policy (lirl pointed twice, but no birds 
were found. Birds were af-tor wards raised by follow- 
ers on ground over which dogs had run Up at 12:20. 
Policy (Hrl handled by Lucas; McCloud Boy by 
Babcock. 

Margaretto-Nellie Bang — Firat brace down after 
lunch at 1:55. Margarette shortly came to point and 
was nicely backed by Nellie, a rabbit being raised. 
Margarette again pointed and was steady to shot. 
Nellie pointed, hut moved on, and later came to stop. 
She excelled in style, speed and range. Justbeforo 
being ordered up NIargarette made another point and 
was steady. Up at 2:27. Margarette handled by 
Dodge; Nellie Hang by Coutts. 

Cuba's Zop-California Bell Boy— Down at 2:32. Bell 
Boy was the more stylish and ranend better, being 
first '.o find, the birds fluihing. Working on scat- 
tered birds Bell Boy made several good points; Zep 
came to point several timea, hut no birds were found. 
Liter, however, he found and was steady to shot. 
Bell Boy had best of heat. Up at 3:15. Cuba's Zep 
handled by Dodge; Bell Boy by Babcock. 

Count's Clip-Miiget — Down at 3:37. Clip showed 
best range and speed, and was more stylish, while 
Mideet excelled in bird work, making three good 
points, one a bevy point in good cover, and being 
steady to shot. Clip pointed and was nicely backed 
by Mideet, the former being somewhat urstoady to 
shot. Up at 4:10. Count's Clip handled by Coutts; 
Midget by Carlyle. 

Petronella-Sport's Destiny- Down at 4:27, in field 
across road from where former brace had run. Birds 
were lying in sunflower patch and were roaded by 
both dogs uhlil they flushed into field where cover 
was low and dense. Both showed excellent range and 
speed. K&ch had many opportunities to point. 
I'etronella mads three irood points, bfing backed by 
Destiny, but was a trifle unsteady. D'>stiny several 
times came to point, but no b'rds could he raised. 
She was a number of times backed by Petronella, who 
showed an inclination to break in. Up at 5, and last 
brace of the day. Petronella handled by Dodge; 
Destiny by Lucas. 



Thursday, January 14— Although an early start 
was made, owing to the fog, the first brace of the 
morning 

Count's Peg-Cuba Jr. was not put down until 10:ftS, 
in large open field. Peg showed best in range and 
speed, but though taken on ground where birds had 
been marked down she failed to locate. (;uba Jr. 
had two points to his credit, being steady to wing and 
shot, on one of which he was backed by Peg. Both 
missed opportunities. Up at 1I:4;{. Couiit's Peg 
handled hy Lucas; Cuba Jr. by l)odg(>. 

Lady (a bye)— Cast off at 11:48, in large open field. 
Lady at once showed the classy lilteh t-he is, ranging 
out for nearly a mile, yet being always under perfect 
command. Returning from her long cast she came to 
a sty lish, snappy point on a blngle which had been 
marked down by spectators. Being ordered «n by 
handler the bird flushed, hut she was steady to wing. 
This was her only work on birds, but her performance 
was of such character that many of the onlookers 
l)icked her aa the coming winner. W. B. Coutts, 
handler. 

This was the last of the first series; and after par- 
taking of a h<)untlf\il hincheon i)rovided by Mr. Tevis 
for members and their friends, the J udge announced 
the following dogs carried into second series: Harry 
II -Jay M.; Kilgarif-McCloud Boy; California Bell 
Boy-Midget; Cuba Jr. -Lady. 

Harry H.-Jay M.— Down at 2:20, on grounds across 
track from "Mule" field. Harry showed speed, style 
and great range, excelling in these respects, though 
both were unfortunate in not fiuding birds. Up at 
3 p. M. 

Kilgarlf-McCloud Boy— Down at 3:14 in same field 
near railroad track, finally being worked across track 
to where birds had been located Kil was first 
to find, pointing a bevy, and followed with three 
more points, being steady to shot and wiog-. Mc- 
Cloud Boy also came to point, and moved on as bird 
was running, finally coming to stop when bird was 
fiusbed. Kilgarif excelled in range and speed and 
showed excellent judgment in locating birds. Up at 
3:27. 

California Bell Boy-Midget— Down at 3:46. Bell 
Boy was best in range, speed and style, though Mid- 
get also ranged well and showed good speed, and was 
better in biid work, making two good points and 
being steady to shot and wing. Up at 4:07. 

Cuba Jr. -Lady — Down at 4:27 in field adjoining 
Canfield schoolhouse. Lady was first to locate and 
pointed bevy, the bird < flushing into open field where 
both dogs made a number of good snappy points, 
being steady to shot and wing, and stanch backers.

fied the morning's prediction. Up at 4:45.

following dogson the grounds the next morning, viz. : 
Lady, Kilgarif, McCloud Boy, Cuba Jr., Harry H.

9:35 in large open field where dogs had opportunity 
to show range and speed. Lady showed to advant- 
age, having wider range, better speed and style than 
Kil. No bird work was done in the heat, and it wcs 
evident that Juoge Bell desired merely to compare 
the dogs in the respects meniioned.

DO further running would be required and declared 
the winners as follows: let. Ladj; 2d. Kilgarif; 3d.

All Ago, and is a fast and stylish dog. 

Cuba of Kenwood-Mountain ^>iiail— Quail was in 
poor condition from lark of work, being fleshy and 
soft. Cuba, though somewhat enfrobled and suffer-

steady to shot. Ordered up at <J:52.

a superintendent and veterinary surgeon for the 
spring show. 

Among the questions discussed was that of the pro- 
posed conference between the various Pacific Kennel 
Leagiie Club members, scheduled to meet at an early 
date in Seattle. The local club delegates were in- 
structed to take such steps as would promote the 
welfare of the Coast clubs, with the object in view of 
bringing about a unification of all (Coast) doggy in- 
terests and with the ultimate purpose of combining 
all of ihe Western kennel clubs under one jurisdiction. 

The Seattle correspondent adds: "1 he success of 
the recent P. K. L. show in San Francisco has in- 
spired the various P. K. L. league clubs to renewed 
activity in kennel affairs and it is probable that the 
league will not only continue to exercise control over 
bench show affairs, but will shortly inaugurate 
several new features calculated to solidify all of tke 
P. K. L. clubs under one parent head and insure the 
supremacy of the league throughout the West. The 
move means the seggregation of all Coast clubs from 
the A. K. C. and the substitution of a government 
adapted to the peculiar (?) requirements of the terri- 
tory over which the Pacific Kennel League now holds 
complete sway. " 

The following from the Victoria Daily Colonist is in- 
dicative that Northern fanciers are actuated by 
much enthusiasm. In this respect it would not be a 
bad example to follow. Small shows, (or an evening, 
particularly specialty shows, for a cup or other 
trophy, are a nucleus for big bhows. One of the 
largest bench shows in England today, the Chelten- 
ham show, is the outgrowta of small one night 
gatherings: 

"The entertainment committee of the Victoria City 
Kennel Club have now completed arrangements for 
the holding of the last evening show of the season, 
which will take place in the Philharmonic hall on 
Port street on the evening of Thursday, the 28th of 
Jrnuary 1904. The breeds will be Cocker Spaniels, 
all varieties of Terriers, Collies, St. Bernard's and a 
miscellaneous class. Dr. G. L. Milne has consented 
to judge Cockers; Mr. Hodgson will take all Terriers 
and Mr. Turner the Collies, St. Bernard's and mis- 
cellaneous cla.<iB. 

The entry fee will be the same as heretofore, viz., 
25 cents per dog for each class entered in. Prize 
money to be devoted to purchase of silver medal for 
best in each breed, provided at least three dogs are 
entered in a class. Members of the club and exhibitors 
free, admission for others, ten cents per head. 

Exhibitors are earnestly requested to have their 
dogs in the hall by half-past six, so that there will be 
no delay In commencing judging at T o'clock sharp, 
and are also reminded that each dog must be pro- 
vided with collar and chain."

the Occidental Hotel. The following oflicers were 
elected: Charles K. Harley, President; John E. Do 
Ruyter, Vice-President; John L. Cunningham, Secre-

DOINGS IN DOGDOM. 



Julius Redelshelmer, of Seattle, was on a brief visit 
in this city last week. 

Seattle has fixed its dates for April 13th to 16tb, 
and will probably use Coast judges as will San Jose. 



The proposed one day show at Oak Grove has been 
postponed, it will be held, probably, the same week 
as the San Jose show. 



The California Collie Club will hold its one day 
show the day before San Jose. As San Jose will be a 
three day show, this will enable three shows, San 
Francisco, Collie Club and San Jose to be held in 
two weeks and will, it is expected, bring many of the 
Northern dogs down. 



Tho Santa Clara Kennel Club was organized in San 
Jose on the 13tb inst. 

The officers elected were: H. Doble, President; C. 
W. Coe, First Vice-President; H. Centre, Second 
Vice-President; Miss Delia Beach, Secretary: J. 
Perry, Treasurer. Bench Show Committee — N. J. 
Stewart, W. C. Bogen, J. Perry and Miss Delia Beach. 

The club has applied for membership in P. K. L. 

The club's initial show will be held the week 
after the spring show in this city. 



The Seattle Kennel Club have elected the following 
officers for the ensuing year: John W. Rlplinger, 
President; E. L. Reber and C. E. Blethen, Vice- 
presidents; Arthur Murphy, Treasurer; Charles Mc- 
Allister, Secretary; L. B. Youngs, F. A. Pontius, F. 
W. Gilbert, C. B. Yandell and J. A. Peebles, Bench 
Show Committee. The committee will later on select 



The American Kennel Club was incorporated at 
Albany, N. Y., December .30th. The board of direct- 
orate is August Belmont, Hempstead, N. Y.; Hollls 
H. Hunnewell, Wellesley, Mass.; Hildreth K. Blood- 
good, James W. Appleton, William G. Rockefeller, 
New York City; Marcel A. Vitl, Philadelphia; Gou- 
verneur M. Carnochan, Riverside, N. Y., and Wm. 
B. Emery, Boston. 

King Commando has been purchased from the 
Ellesgy Kennels by H. M. Pabst. 

J. F. Mahoney, of this city, states that Mrs. A. W- 
Lee, the well known owner of the Alta Kennelsi 
Toledo, Ohio, will pay a visit to the Coast this spring. 
Mrs. Lee proposes to take in the April show. 

Striped Bass Angling. 

Striped bass fishing In the waters near Tlburon, 
Marin county, is now a defined quantity and the possi- 
bilities of enjoying sport with rod and line are demon- 
strated by a partial record of fish taken by Mr. G. W. 
Miller and a few notes of catches made by several 
other anglers. It will be seen by the dates below 
that the fish taken were evidently caught at times 
when they were frequenting the waters here men- 
tioned, for the anglers were out a number of times 
and returned empty handed. These fish were all 
taken on No. 5 and 6 Wilson spoons. It will be re- 
membered that during October some big catches 
were also made by members of the Pacific Striped 
Bass Club. 

Mr. Miller is a resident of Belvidere, and despite 
his age, nearly three score and ten. Is an expert boat- 
man and can give some of the younger devotees of the 
fishing grounds a few pointers in hooking and land- 
ing a bass. 

The fish Mr. Miller landed weie taicen in Belvedere 
cove, near Peninsular Point, and between the.polnt 
and the fish wharf on Belvedere island . This fishing 
ground, as is well known, being at certain stages of 
the tides rather turbulent and full of swift currents 
and stormy, swirling eddies. 

Mr. Miller's take for 

April was — 23rd, 2 bass, 5 pounds each; 25th, 1 hasp, 
6i lbs.; 28th, 1 bass, 4} lbs.; 30th, 1 bass, 5 lbs. 
May 9th, 1 bass, 4A lbs. 
July 31st, 1 baas, 91b8. 

October 2nd, 1 bass, 21 lbs.; 3rd, 1 bass, 12 lbs.; 4th, 
1 bass, 13 lbs.; 7th, 1 bass, 12 lbs. (these two fish were 
caught off Angel Island); 18th, 1 bass, 14 lbs. ; 21st, 1

On July 3l8t, Roy and Fannie Miller, grandchildren 
of Mr. Miller landed two fish weighing 10^ and 7 
pounds respectively. On October 4th, Mr. Chas. E. 
Miller, his son, was fishing with him off Angel island. 

From the foregoing record it will be readily seen

that Mr. Miller, Sr., is an angler o( skill and per- 
severance. 

In connection with this Mr. Miller has given us the 
results of a fine combined catch made an October 
27th at Pettycoat cove, Angel island, by Mr. Chas. E. 
Miller and the late James U. Pariser. Eight bass 
were taken on their trolling spoons, and the weights 
were: 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 4, and 4 pounds respectively. 



Close season on steel head trout will ensue from Feb- 
ruary Ist until April Ist. 

Until the last rains fishing for the game trout of 
the Coast streams has been better than for several 
seasons past. 

The best steelhead fishing enjoyed by local anglers 
was had near Point Reyes in tne Paper Mill creek. 
Last Sunday there was quite a gathering of Wal- 
tonians at that resort. The heavy rains of the pre- 
vious night, however, spoiled to a great extent the 
fishing for the day. The creek however was getting 
into fine shape again this week, and clear weather to- 
day and to-morrow will In vlte another gathering of 
the anglers. 

Russian river, up as far as Austin creek, has proven 
a fairly good steelhead fishing water until the recent 
rain. A large number of local fishermen were at 
Duncan's Mills enjoyinp thesport. Prominent among 
them were, Champion John Gallagher and the Dook 
of 'Ayden. These two veteran anglers have not 
mi ssed a season on the river (when there was any 
fishing), for years past. Butler (the Dook) returned 
to the city with several fine fish. "President" Lem- 
mer also took a shy at the stream and landed several 
big fish,

THE FARM. 



A Wide Market for Mohair. 



The increasing number of .\ngora goats 
in the United States bas resulted in con- 
siderable inquiry relative to the market 
for this product. The Department of Ag- 
riculture in conducting an investigation 
relative to the Angora goat industry made 
extensive inquiry of growere, «ays Oramjc 
Judd Farmer. The universal opinion 
seems to be that there is at present no 
difficulty in disposing of mohair The 
breeders believe that the demand will 
continue to increase. One Arizona pro- 
ducer stated that he had no ditticulty in 
disposing of his good mohair, but short, 
kempy stock goes slow and sells at low 
prices. The ingenuity of manufacturers 
in worliing the belter grades into woolen 
fabrics and the finest piushea and the 
poorer grades into pluahei for car seats, 
horse blanket?, etc., is creating a large 
consumptive demand. 

There are more than enough factories in 
this country to work up all the mohair 
that is produced and will be for some time 
to come. In fact many of them have not 
attempted to use mohair, because the sup- 
ply is so limited. The mohair factories 
are all in the eastern part of the country 
and the principal market is New York 
city. The marketing center of the world 
it Bradford, Kneland, where all the prod- 
uct from the Cape of Good Hope and Tur- 
key is sold. Very few mills purchase from 
the grower; they pre'er to buy from the 
commission merchant after he has 8e[)a- 
rated and classified the fleeces. A few 
purchasers sell to merchants in Boston 
and in the northwest to Portland dealers. 
On the western coast San .Jose, Cal., is a 
prominent market. 

The use of Angora pelts for rugs and 
trimmings is quite extensive. When it 
became impossible to supply the demand 
for Buffalo robes there came a great de- 
mand for Angora skins tanned with the 
hair on. The skin is tough and the fleece 
can be easily dyed any desirable color. 
At present the skins of the kids and 
younger does are made into robes for babv 
carriages. A greater numl>er is used for 
this purpose than in any other way. As 
rugs they are both durable and ornamental 
and their softness makes them very desir- 
able. As a general statement Angora 
pelts are worth from $2 to $3 each. 



Notes for the Cowkeeper. 

Wheat bran is better for the production 
of milk than corn meal. 

The cow, as well as any other farm stock, 
will pay a better profit if treated kindly. 

A cow is profitable just as long as she 
gives a profitable return for the food she 
consumes. 

The best cream raising can only be 
secured by keeping the milk sweet as 
long as possible. 

To a very considerable extent the mat- 
ter of notable performances is wholly an 
indiviiUial function. 

A combination of bran, oil meal and 
corn meal makes one of the best rations 
for dairy cows in the winter. 

Loss of flesh and shrinkage of milk fol 
lows neglect, and starvation follows 
rations of improper food. 

Garget most often sets in after calving, 
and this is nearly always due to a failure 
to get the udder dry. 

Milk regularly twice a day. If a cow 
does not give a sufficient amount of milk 
to warrant this, let her go dry. 

The dairy cow isa milk-making medinm 
and should be kept in the best working 
condition, which is one of quiet. 

Many of the (ows kept on the farm 
cannot, either by feed or care, be induced 
to yield a profitable amount of niilk. 
The sooner this class is fattened and 
marketed, the better for the profits of the 
farm. 

The best foods to make bloo<l are the 
best for milk production, and the cow to 
make good milk needs good blood. That 
can best and cheapest be made by gener- 
ous, comfortable treatment, comfortable 
quarters, pure air, pure water and whole- 
some, nutritious food.— Kiut'iult's Dniri/ 
Farmer. 

Cold Grafting Wax. 



Kvery orchardist knows what trouble it 
ia when top grafting in cold weather to 
warm his wax. He has to carry some 
kind of heating apparatus along with bim 
and by some carelesiness if the wax is tof) 
hot, it ifl Impossible the bark of the §U>ck 
or scions will get burnt. This never 
occurs when cold grafting wax is uae<l and 
it is not very costly if made as follows : 

One pound of resin melted slowly on 
the stove. When it is melted, warm two 
and one-half ounces of a'cohol and one 
tablespoonful of linseed oil, add this to 
the melted reain. Put it in a tin pot mix 
well and let cool slowly and then dote 
hermetically. This wax can be put on

When a man increases the number of 
his cows at the exfiense of (piality he does 
a very unbusinesslike thing, says Ihtiry 
and Creamery. Better not keep more 
cows anieis they are goo<l ones. Take 
better care of what you have and be con- 
tent rather than buy poor cows. Where 
one raises his own cows he should test 



out the heifers that do not promise as wel 
as possible, no matter if they are regis- 
tered and haveagood pedigree. Wc must 
have something in the dairy barn besidi ■ 
breeding to make a siiccefs. We want in- 
dividuality. When this is well hacked up

judicious to sell a heifer if she does not 
come up to the standard the firfitsraeon

Holsteia-Friesians at Home. 



fS. }ioxic, before the New York State Breeders' 
Association]. 

Holstein-Friesian cattle have been pro- 
duced by an environment in which the 
peasant farmers of North Holland and 
Friealand have unconsciously taken a 
large and very essential part. These 
peasants are the descendants of the an- 
cient Friesians, of which Tacitus wrote 
nearly two thousand years ago, that they 
were peaceable cattle breeders dwelling 
on the shores of the North sea. How 
they were then protected in this peacea- 
ble occupation amid the rovine, piratical 
tribes that surrounded them is unknown. 
They claim to have never been con- 
quered, but admit that their ancient an- 
cestors formed an alliance with the Ro- 
man Empire, and paid to it an annual 
tribute of ox hides and horns. 

It is almost impossible for an American 
farmer to imagine the intense conserva- 
tism of these peasant farmers, especially 
those of Friesland, where the ancient 
blood is pure. Here they use the ancient 
Friesian dialect in conversing with one 
another, although educated in their very 
excellent common schools, exclusively in 
the Holland or Dutch language. They 
seldom intermarry with other races, and 
evidently cherish an abhorrence to such 
unions. They apparently have no 
ambitions beyond dwelling with and 
handling cattle Doubtless they con- 
stitute the wealthiest class of peasftntry 
in Europe, yet they refuse to be regarded 
other than third class people. In North 
Holland, where there is a considerable 
admixture of Celtic blood, this conserva 
tism is not so intense, and farmers are 
sometimes called to high positions of 
state. 

The conservative spirit that I have thus 
described, together with the soil, climate 
and the influence of markets, must be 
largely credited with producing the char- 
acteristics of this breed, to which we 
American breeders have given the name 
Holstein-Friesian. 

The first thing we note is the natural 
richness of the soils. Those on which 
the cattle are bred and used in dairy hus- 
bandry generally range from light to ex- 
ceedinglv heavy clays, although some 
fine herds are found on loam and peat 
soils. The larger cattle are found on the 
heavier soils. So important, in the de- 
velopment of cattle, do breeders regard 
the influence of soils, their herd books 
re(iuire that the kind of soil on which the 
animal is bred and raised shall be pub- 
lished in its entry. In their view, the 
value of a pedigree may be determined to 
some extent by the soils on which the 
animals included in it were bred. I do 
not propose to draw any inferences in 
this paper as to the value of the various 
features of the environment that I shall 
try to describe. I leave this for the dis- 
cussion that I hope will follow. 

The second thing we note is the climate 
and the provisions made against its ex- 
treme severity in winter. It is said that 
the ice freezes on the Ij, an arm of the 
Zuvder Zee, at Amsterdam, to the depth 
of three and a half feet. The region is a 
stormy one in winter, it lies so exposed to 
the sleets and blasts of the North Sea. 
Against these the cattle must be protected. 
Immense structures — call them houses or 
barns— are seen in every direction, in 
which the cattle are kept during this 
period, in close intimacy with the farmer's 
whole family. In form they resemble 
nnmense tents. A description of one will 
give the general type. On the ground, 80 
feet wide and 135 feet long ; outside wall 
of brick, 6)4 feet high ; an inside structure 
of large poles similar to our telegraph 
poles supports a very steep roof, the ridge 
of which is forty or fifty feet from the 
. floor ; in the rear is a modern structure 
about 20 wide and 25 feet long, in which 
are a narrow hall, a family sitting room 
and parlor. The kitchen is in the main 
bailding, a door opens from it into the 
cow stable, which is about Hi feet wide 
and runs one side of the great structure 
its full length. It accommodates .36 cows 



in stalls, two in a stall, a window in each 
stall fronting the cows. Here they are 
fed and watered during the whole winter 
without leaving their stalls. They have 
no exercise save what they get in the 
stalls. 

This stable seems to be comfortably 
warmed by the heat that emanates from 
the cows, but do they have sufficient 
change of air? About eight feet above 
the stable is a loose covering of boards on 
which there is a layer of loose straw. 
Evidently to a certain extent the heated 
air from the bodies of the cows passes up 
through this covering into the great roof 
space and thence to the outside by venti- 
lators in the ridge of the roof. Fresh air 
is supplied from the great barn space be- 
low, through doors and perhaps more or 
less crevices in the partition that separates 
the stable from this space. 

The third thing we note is the necessi- 
ties of these farmers. As a class th«y are 
tenantE', and have to pay an annual rent 
to their landlords of from $10 to $20 an 
acre on their holdings. Their cows must 
be rent jiayers. They cannot afford to 
keep a single cow at a loss, as our farmers 
sometimes do. In their system of man- 
agement the cows must be made profitable, 
both in the products of milk and the pro- 
ducts of tlebh. When I was a young man 
I worked for a dairy farmer who held that 
some dairy cows could be profitably fatted 
for beef and others could not be thus 
profitably fatted, and that the difference 
lay in the fact that the onec ass deposited 
fat largely around the kidneys and on the 
intestines, the other largely on the ribs 
and the interstices of the muscles. I do 
not know that this theory is correct, but 
I venture it as a hypothesis to explain 
the success of these Friesian dairymen. 

Lastly, a few minor features are worthy 
of note. Among these are the bull shows 
held in the springtime in almost every 
village and the cow markets held weekly 
or bi-weekly in the principal towns and 
villages. Both are fostered by the local 
governments. The former are designed 
to educate the farmers in the best types 
of bulls and to enable them to select and 
purchase such ai are suitable for their 
herds. There is no display about these 
shows and no holiday excitement. They 
are for business. The same may be said 
of the cow markets, yet I doubt if a finer 
display of cows has ever been seen at any 
of our World's Fairs that are shown every 
week at some of the market places. In 
order to give a correct impression of the 
influence of these markets on the develop- 
ment of the breed, I will describe the 
one at Leuwarden, the shire town or 
capital of Friesland. The market ground 
occupies from four to six acres. Here on 
every Friday may be seen from two hun- 
dred tofour hundred cows, nicely groomed 
and in fine condition, the great majority 
in milk. They are such as the farmers 
themselves in the surrounding districts 
have selected from their herds to sell. 
The probabilities are that they are not 
as great milkers as they desire to keep. 
Here are buyers from Germany, South 
Holland, Belgium and probably France. 
Every convenience for shipping is pro- 
vided Probably, the majority are sold. 
Of course some will return to their own 
pastures or stables and be brought on the 
next day. Thus a constant sifting pro- 
cess goes on. With rare exceptions they 
do not keep cows beyond six years old. 
Thus it will be seen that their herds are 
constantly renewed by the offspring of 
cows in their prime. 

Before leaving this part of my subject, 
I hope it will not be regarded out of 
place to refer to the productiveness of 
these cattle in the province of Friesland. 
In 1874, before oleomargarine w/s known, 
England imported from this province 
40,7G3 hundred weight of cheese and 206,- 
041 hundred weight of butler. I quote 
these figures from Chambers' Encyclo- 
pedia. The area of tliis province is 1,253 
square miles, about that of Herkimer 
county, in this State. In 1870 a census of 
cows was taken and found to be 144,802. 
If there was a like number in 1874 



England's importation of bulterfrom that 
province that year, averaged 204?4 pounds 
to every cow of whatever age or condi- 
tion. 



A Dairy Cow Standard. 

Some twelve years ago, when I took 
charge of the dairy department, we had 
about a dozen ordinary grade cows. 

At present we have about thirty cows 
milking and twenty younger animals 
coming on. 

We have steadily increased the produc 
tion of our herd and last year the average 
of the herd was over 8000 pounds of milk 
per cow, and over 300 pounds of butter 
per cow. 

For 1902 the record is not so large, 
owing to the fact that we have five heifers 
with first calves, which have brought 
down the average. 

However, I believe we are steadily im- 
proving our herd. 

We selected first the best grade cows 
we could get, using pure-bred sires of the 
dairy breeds always, and raising practi- 
cally all the heifer calves; then at the end 
of the second milking period weeding out 
all that had not come up to our standard. 

Here is the first principle I would lay 
down as necessary in founding and main- 
taining a dairy herd- Have a standard, 
and if a cow does not come up to that 
standard, the wise dairyman will get rid 
of her, no matter what she cost. 

Our standard is 6000 pounds of milk 
and 250 pounds of butter. 

I expect we shall bring our herd up to 
10,000 pounds of milk and 400 pounds of 
butter per cow. 

That can only bo done by a process of 
breeding and selection. 

When we buy a cow we weigh her milk 
every night and morning, take a sample 
and put it into the Babcock test and test 
it. 

Then at the end of the month we know 
the number of pounds of milk she is 
yielding and the percentage of fat. 

At the end of the year we know what 
each cow has done, and if she does not 
come up to the standard we get rid of her. 

In the case of heifers, with their first 
calves, we give them a second trial. 

That briefly is the plan we have 
adopted— raising all our heifer calves, 
having them drop their calves at two and 
one-half or three years old, milking for 
two lactation periods, and weed ing out at 
the end of the second lactation period. 

To improve the quality of the herd and 
the ([uantity of the milk yield, a man 
must not only breed his cows right, and 
weed them out according to standard, but 
it also involves the question of feeding. 

People say : "No wonder your cows 
milk well ; you feed them so well." 

Cows cannot be expected to mi'k well 
on a small quantity of feed. 

I have no time to discuss the question 
of feeding in detail; the main thing is to 
give the cow all the bulky food she will 
eat; but it should be of a digestible and 
palatable nature. 

In addition to this she should receive 
eight pounds of meal to every thirty 
pounds of milk produced in order that 
she may produce milk economically. — 
Prof. H. H. Deane, Ontario College of 
Agriculture. 

When your laying birds have a warm 
place to roost and a scratching room 
where they are protected from the cold 
winds, they have all that is needed in the 
way of housing and proper feeding will 
do the rest. 

o 

The fall is always the best time to 
make a beginning in the poultry busi- 
ness and we advise starting with your 
own breeding birds and not depend 
upon somebody else to furnish your 
eggs.

Small Sheep Farming. 



A small grass farm for sheep should be 
divided into small fields of from five to 
ten acres each, according to the size of 
tbe farm and the number of sheep. 

The land devoted to eheep should be 
fully stocked to use the pasture to the 
best advantage and forage crops provided 
for fall feeding when pasture fails and 
the sheep need a little extra feed to put 
them in good condition for winter. 

Rape is one of the best crops for this 
purpose. It is easily grown, yields a 
large tonnage per acre, sheep like it and 
it agrees with them. 

Sheep need but little grain, except when 
giving milk. At this time, as well as for 
some weeks before weaning and after 
weaning, the ewes should receive careful 
attention. Their feed should be well 
balanced to keep them in good healthy 
condition and to supply plenty of milk 
for the lambs. 

A shed, open to the south, with a yard 
that is protected from cold winde, is one 
of the best arrangements for eheep in 
winter. The shed should be tight boardeil 
on three sides. If there is no wall under 
the sills, rough boards may l>e set along 
with the lower edge below the surface of 
the ground. Old rails with straw and 
earth thrown over them will answer the 
same purpose, but it is a slovenly way. 
But some means must be provided to 
prevent air currents. Plenty of fresh air 
and light ii necessary, but sheep should 
be kept dry and free from draughts. 

Doors or gates are necessary to keep 
the sheep in during stormy weather, as 
thev are very foolish at such timet. They 
will, if permitted, stand outside of the 
shed during winter storms until their 
wool is soaked. 

Feed well bred sheep liberally, keep 
them free from parasites and vermin, 
protect them from wind and rain and 
they will pay handsomely —Ii. A. Frayik- 
lin. ^ 

Blood meal is one of the best foods we 
have, either for egg producing or for fat- 
tening or rearing chickens, says an Ontario 
correspondent of American ('idtvator. 
There is no more economical food to buy. 
It costs $.3.50 per hundred, but it is almost 
all good. It is all albumen. We use one 
pound of blood to sixteen pounds of meal. 
Sometimes we use blood right from the 
■laughter house, putting it in sacks and 
boiling for a couple of hours. The blood 
is boiled in water. Put it into a bag, and 
then put the bag into a wash boiler and 
pour water over it and boil for two 
honrs. It is then like bran, and you mix 
it with the meal. 

Celvea ap to one year old fed on alfalfa 
end corn for baby beef require only from 
one-third to one-half as much grain to 
produce 100 pounds gain as is required by 
mature steers. In this country where 
steers can be grown to maturity very 
cheaply by ranging in summer and feed- 
ing a little alfalfa in winter and where 
grain is always high it is well to sell 
mature stock to Kansas, Nebraska and 
Missouri feeders and finish up a certain 
per cent of baby beef each winter on the 
sarplui alfalfa with a little corn and con- 
siderable sugar beets, beet pulp and tops 

If a little and a little more milk is left 
in a cow's udder at each milking the 
result will be a gradual drying up. On 
tbe other hand if the cow is milked abso- 
lutely clean and every drop is stripped 
from the udder each time the effect will 
be to make the cow give all the milk she 
is capable of producing. Clean milking 
pays and it also pays to have one person 
milk each individual cow regularly all the 
time. 

Dehorned steers are best for feeders. 
They are more quiet, can be kept in a 
■mailer lot and more of them be fed at 
etch bunker than those with horns. In 
this a laving of etjuipment and labor in 
feeding is effected, besides making a 
nniform gain on the same amount of feed 
because the steers do not punch each 
Other all over the whole works.

REPEATING SHOT GUNS 



A CHANCE FOR A DOUBLE 

A QUESTION often asked about Repeating Shotguns ip, "How quick can a second shot befired with 
them?" Shooters that have used Repeaters answer with one accord: "Doubles" are just as easy to 
make with a WINCHESTER REPEATING SHOTGUN as they are with a double barreled 
gun. The third shot that a Wiacheater Rapeater gives often bags a badly crippled bird which otherwise 
would get away. Winchester Repeating Shotguns are made in "Take Down" styles in 12 and 16 gauge.

CAMPBELL'S HORSE FOOT REMEOV 



BEST REMEDY 



EVER USED ON HORSES' FEET. 

IT PENETRATE.? and DRIES IN quickly and DOES 
NOT GUM and FILL UP THE PORES like tar and oil 
compounds. It is the GREATEST REMEDY ever used to 
remove SORENESS and FEVER from the foot, and makes it 
possible to get good services out of a horse working on hard 
and hot pavements 

It gives natural nourishment to the foot and incites a 
rapid, healthy growth— ALL DRYNESS AND BRITTLE- 
NESS quicklv disappears. 

QUARTER CRACKS and SAND CRACKS are rapidly 
grown out when directions given in our booklet are followed. 

It Is a SURE CURE for COR.VS, CONTRACTED FEET 
and NAIL WOUNDS if directions are followed 

It PRE,VEKTS SOUND FEET FROM BECOMING UN- 
SOUND and GROWS a TOUGH. STRONG. ELASTIC WALL 
and HEALTHY FROG— A FOOT WHICH WILL STAND 
WORK on race courses. 

Many of the best owners and trainers state that for track 
work nothing equals it. In many cases horses have reduced 
their records several .seconds, due to its use. 

It is a CER'J AIN CURE for THRUSH and SCRATCHES 
We Ouaranice That It Will Do Wbat We Claim 
and Will Refund Money If It Falls. 

PRICKS :-Quarts. $100; Half-Gallon, $1.75; Gallon, $300; 
■2^-Gallon, $5.50; Five-Gallon, $10,00. 
Books giving full directions for its use and much valuable information as to shoeing are supplied 
). 

Don't fail to read "ad." giving Information concerning Campbell's Iodoform Gall Cure In next 
Issue of this paper. It is the best and because of its merits is rapidly displacing all others.

THE REQUEST OF THE AMATEURS to be per- 
mitted to charge gate receipts to their meeticgp, 
and at the satne time have no records given the 
horses that win amateur events, was denied by the 
Advisory Board and the question will probably not 
come up before the Board of Reviews when it meets 
in New York next month. This questicn of records 
has bothered the amateurs for a long time and tbey 
think it unjust that some p an cannot be devised by 
which they can race their horses among themselves 
without incurring the penalties of records. How- 
ever the Ad visory Board acted right in the matter 
and will be upheld in the decision by horsemen gener- 
ally. The trouble with nearly all amateurs is that 
they want to eat their cake and have it too. Nino 
out of ten of them want all the glory they can possi- 
bly get out of driving a horse a fast mile, 
yet they desire to escape the penalties that 
naturally follow. It would be a rank injustice to 
horse breeders and trainers if the wealthy amateurs 
were permitted to give their horses all the experience 
of actual racing that the matinee plan undoubtedly 
furnishes, and after demonstrating to a certainty 
that they were capable of trotting or pacing three 
successive heats in company in 2:15 or better, and 
then enter them in the green or slow classes on the 
regular circuit where stakes and purses are offered. 
The plea that the amateur owner is only racing for 
glory does not seem to be an honest one when he de- 
sires to enter a horse in the M. i<c M. $10,000 stake for 
2:2.3 class trotters after he has won several amateur 
races where the heats were all trotted ir. better than 
2:15. If an amateur is a true sportsman he will be 
perfectly willing to enter bis horse only in the classes 
to which he is eligible by the amateur as well as the 
professional records. The trotting turf could not 
ha ve a more serious blow struck it than to permit 
amateurs to charge admission fees to their meetings 
and at the same time avoid records made by their 
horses. 

ALFONSO 2:29}, son of the great stallion Baron 
Wilkes and of the still greater mare Alma 
Mater, wai sold at auction in Chicago last week for 
$750. Alfonso was foaled in 188G, being therefore 
eighteen years old. Grandly bred as he it, his success 
in the stud has not beet such as would cause him to 
take high rank among the sires of to-day. He is the 
sire of but eighteen performers, the fattest being 
the trotting mare Alfonso Maid 2:12} that took her 
record this year. She is his only 2:15 performer, the 
next fastest being Marie C. 2:10}. But three have 
records better than 2:20. These few facts will show 
why a stallion by Baron Wilkes out of Alma Mater, 
probably the greatest of broodmares, brought only 
$750 at auction. 



THE DROUTH in the southern part of Californi 
has assumed a most sorioua aspect and unless 
rain falls there within the next two weeks thousands 
of cattle and sheep will doubtless perish In the dis- 
trict south of Bakersfield. On the coast from Mon- 
terey south there Is also a great need of rain and 
efforts are being made by owners of cattle to have 



the quarantine raised that they may ship their cattle 
north. That section has been aflllctcd with To.xas 
fever and a quarantine established against it by the 
authorities. Cattle can now be removed if they are 
inspected of!iclally and found clean, but alter January 
.ilst this privilege expires. There are between 400,- 
000 and .500,000 head of catile in the drouth stricken 
district and unless rain comes within two weeks they 
will have to be moved or die. 



Answers to Correspondents. 

L. C. G., Modesto — I would like for you to got me 
the name and the breeding of a thoroughbn-il horse 
that made the season at Davton, Nevada, in the your 
1877. 

Answer — We have no record of horses standing In 
Nevada that long ago. Perhaps some of our readers 
may be able to give this Information. Probably the 
best way to get the facts would be to consult the files 
of the Dayton papers If any were published in that 
year. 

J. O'Gr.vdy, Seattle— Please give the pedigree of 
Deborah by Sable Wilkes through your coUimns? 

Answer— Deborah 2:21 J, bay mare, foaled 18!t0, star, 
black points. Sire Sable Wilkes, dam Sproule by Lc 
GranJe 280)8, second dam May Sproule (ilain of Mar- 
garet 2:28) by The Moor S70, third dam the Belmont 
mare, said to be by Williamson's Belmont. Deborah 
Is standard and registered. 



Lou Dillon's Future Trials. 

It Is unofficially stated that Mr. Billings intends 
starting the trotting queen to the Maud S. sulky, 
which Mr. Robert K. Bonner tendered him recently, 
and over the Cleveland track with exactly the sance 
pace used back in 1885. This would mean that the 
pacemaker mustdraw a high-wheel sulky or cart. 

It is also stated that the Chicago gentleman Intends 
to start, the mare with pace at the side, rather than 
preceding her at the pole. Ho may or may not do this. 
Those who stop a moment and consider that he 
brought Lou Dillon to New York, used her over a 
crowded roadway like our Speedwar, and to a frail 
wagon, will recognize the fact that when he assumes 
control of any horse he does not keep it under glass 
or give hothouse care. He is a horseman par excel- 
lence, fearing absolutely nothing, and those who 
know Lou Dillon recall her fractious days when the 
close observers considered her worthless to race, as 
she would not be rated at the score. 

We may see Lou Dillon at the pole, too, if the owner 
so elects, although r o one could select a trotter capa- 
ble of keeping the clip she would set. All this may 
be on the tapis, yet till Mr. Billings gets ready to plan 
Lou Dillon's schedule for 1904, nothing official will be 
given out. It is useless prophesying as to her 
evectual record, as none know how fast she can trot. 
Charlie Tanner said that he had timed a trotter a 
quarter In 2f)J seconds, and what other could It have 
been? — 'I'rotter and Pacer. 



Not Hambletonian's Son. 

It having been stated that the stallion Orange 
Blossom 2:2ii^, now 37 years old. Is a son of Hamble- 
tonlan 10 the Richmond JUKpatch makes this cor- 
rection: 

"An erroneous iteth Is now going the rounds of the 
turf press to the effect that Orange Blossom 2:2()J, 
owned by Hon. H. B. Ilolton, of Powhatan, Md., Is by 
Hambletonian 10, some of them giving him as the 
oldest living son of that famous progenitor, when the 
fact is, be was sired by MIddletown, son of Hamble- 
tonian 10; dam Nelly I'ost by American Star 14. The 
bay stallion was foaled in 18()7, is still alive and ap- 
parently in good health, although be has reached the 
advanced age of .'17 years." 



The introduction of fifty-pound wagons for speed- 
way work has revolutionized the mounted policeman's 
art of stopping runaways on the road. To snatch a 
horse by the head and bring him up with a sharp 
turn, like a cowboy roping a steer. Is nowadays more 
dangerous to the occupant of one of these feather- 
weight pneumatics than to let the horse run, as the 
wagon is instantly overturned and the driver pitched 
out. The clever men of the speedway t<quad have 
learned to slow the runaway horso down gradually, 
after nabbing him, and always keep him going 
straight if possible until brought to a standstill, in 
order to avoid overturning the wagon. 



In spite of the dullness of the export market In 
pedigree trotters, the National Trotting Association 
issued 89 certificates last joar. Of course there were 
a large number of trotting bred roadsters and car- 
riage horses exported for which no certificates were 
taken, as they wore not intended for racing or breed- 
ing purposes. 

Jackson '■ Napa Soda it told In every oit/, tows 
and hamlet in the State. 



One of the Sidney Family. 

Stallions carryinu the Moid of Sid ney will receive 
an increased patroniigo this year. The wonderful 
flights of speed shown by Lou Dillon have furnished 
the evidence that the admirers of the Sidney family 
have been looking for to prove their thcori- that Sid- 
ney Is one of the greatest sires that ever lived and for 
his opportunities the greatest of the Strathmore 
family. Now that a son of Sidney has sired the 
fastest trotter In the world, other sons of Sidney will 
doubtless bo patronized by breeders who have rather 
given them the go-by In the past. For several years 
the Bkeedek ANMi SPORTSMAN has advised breeders 
to not overlook Monterey 2:09}, son of Sidney atd 
the great mare Hattie (dam also of Montana 2:li'<) by 
Commodore Belmont. Monterey Is a large, handsome 
horse with that magniliccnt high action that the 
majority of intelligent breeders now consider neces- 
sary In a great sire. And then Monterey is a race 
horse. He has demonstrated that he can trot heat 
after heat and not get "that tired feeling" which so 
many alleged race horses experience after a fast mile 
or two. Mr. P. J. Williams, his owner, Is confident 
that, In shape, Monterey can closely press Cresccus' 
great two-mile record of 4:17. Monterey Jr., a very 
handsome three year old owned in Humboldt county, 
got a race record last year of 2:24 J and a threejear 
old colt called Irish by Monterey, showed a trial in 
2:15 last year on one of the eastern training tracks, 
and will be raced this year. 

We advise breeders to write to Mr. Williams for a 
tabulated pedigreeof Monterey and arrange for book- 
ing some of their mares. He Is the fastest boo of Sid. 
ney and his son Is a great broodmare. 



Los Angeles Matinee.

Bonnie Direct 2:05 1-4. 

This superb stallion will be In the stud at Pleasan- 
ton again this year to a limited number of approved 
mares at $100 the season. Bonnie Direct, as all horse- 
men know, is not only one of the fastest pacers of the 
Direct family, hut he la probably the most perfectly 
formed horse ever sired by the great Direct. His dam 
Bon Bon 2:2(> by Simmons was also the dam of that 
handsome maro Bonsilene 2:14}, and came from a 
family that was endowed iwith good looks for genera- 
tions. The oldest of Bonnie Pirect's get are two- 
yoar-olds, of which there are three now at Pleasan- 
ton, as well as three yearlings. They are all from 
differently bred dams, and show that Bonnie Diiect 
gets handsome foals from all kinds of mares. They 
have more finish than the get of any of the Director 
family we have yet seen, and are large, bandBOice 
and with great natural speed. 

Mr. Griffith has also In the stud at Pleasanton the 
young stallion Bonnie Stelnway, a four-year-old by 
Steinway out of Bon Bon, dam of Bonnie Direct. 
This stallion will stand at a fee of $25, a very low 
figure when his Individuality and breeding are taken 
into consideration. 

Mr. Griffith has Issued a very neat pamphlet glvinj; 
the tabulated breeding of those horses, together with 
a lot of interesting facts about the records of their 
ancestors, which will he sent on application. Seethe 
advertisement in this issue. 



Thoroughbreds have curious histories sometimes. 
Hands Across was one of the best looking and best 
bred sons of Hanover ever sold at auction in this 
country. He was bought for $14,000 when two years 
old, but he fell sick soon after and never won a dollar 
until a week or so ago when he took down first money 
In a purse at New Orleans.

JOTTINGS. 

THE SKCKKTARY of each district fair association 
in California should make an etTort to get his 
board of directors together at an early dale acd de- 
cide whether or not the association will givea harness 
race meeting this year. There is a condition existing 
at the present time in regard to a circuit that associ- 
ations must take into consideration and act upon 
without further delay, or they will be left "off the 
map" and not be able to get enough entries to make 
a meeting profitable. Three good meetings are cer- 
tain. They will be the Pleasanton meeting, the 
Breeders meeting and the State Fair. Pleasanton 
will give the first meeting on the circuit. This has 
been fully decided upon by the now association formed 
there and it is only delaying the announcement of its 
date to give other places an opportunity to get in 
line. The Breeders, on account of its four colt stakes, 
desires to make its date as late as possible and yet 
precede the State Fair, and if no other associations 
claim dates, these meetings will be held in August, to 
be followed by the State Fair at Sacramento and then 
all the leading stables of horses will be shipped North 
fo race for the big purses and stakes that will be hung 
up by the Oregon State Fair at its meeting at Salem. 
It is learned from Mr. Thos. Smith that Vallejo will 
give a meeting this ^year with two or three stakes of 
$1000 each and a good program of $500 purses, but its 
date has not yet been claimed, nor its meeting author- 
itatively announced. Napa is inclined to give a meet- 
ing but it is in the same shape as Vallejo so far as 
official announcement is concerned. Woodland has 
made no announcement at all, but the horsemen living 
there say that a meeting will probably be held on the 
usual date, which is the week before the State Fair. 
Now, If these associations would only get a move on, 
claim dates and announce that meetings will be held, 
the Pleasanton association and the Breeders will 
arrange their dates in accordance with a plan that 
will make the circuit most convenient for horsemen. 



If Woodland will claim the week prior to the State 
Pair and officially announce the fact, the Breeders 
will take the week preceding Woodland ; Napa and 
Vallejo and Petaluma can come in before the Breeders 
meeting, and Pleasanton open the circuit sometime 
in July. This will give a circuit about as follows: 

Pleasanton, week ending July 23, 

Pdtaluma, week ending July 30. 

Napa, week ending August 6. 

Vallejo, week ending August 13. 

Breeders, week ending August 20. 

Woodland, week ending August 2". 

State Fair, two weeks ending September 10. 



This will give eight weeks of racing before the 
Oregon State Fair opens and give all the best Cali- 
fornia and Oregon strings a chance to race here before 
going North. 

Njjv, uilesj tha Cilifornia associations that desire 
to get into the circuit this year select datex and an- 
nounce tlie fact before the Pleasanton and Breeders 
associations close their stakes on March Ist, then 
those two associations will in defense of their best in- 
terests be compelled to select the last two veekE in 
August as the dates for their meetlngf^, and other 
associations will have to take dates prior to that 
time if they desire to secure the leading stables for 
their meetings. 

Jt will not cost a cent for an association to claim a 
date and say that it will give a mtetinp. The 
Breedbr and Sportsman and every other news- 
paper in the State that prints any harness horse 
news will be glad to publish the item. There are 
more horses in training in California at the present 
time than there have been for years. Forty trainers 
are working trotters and pacers at Pleasanton. A 
dozen trainers will be at work a^ San Jose within 
anothi>r week, some seven or eight being there now. 
Los Angeles track is stabling over 175 horses that are 
being trained for the harness events this year. Santa 
Rosa, Petaluma, Ukiah, Eureka, Sacramento, Fresno, 
Salinas, Hollister, Alameda, Bakersfield, Hanford, 
San Bernardino and many other places have from a 
dozen to fifty horses at work on their tracks. 



The North Pacific Circuit was a great success last 
year and the California horsemen want to go there 
again. They would rather race at home, however, 
during the early part of the season and strike the 
northern circuit at Salem, which opens the week 
after the California State Fair will close. Then, 
again, there are quite a number of Oregon and Wash- 
ington horsemen who would like to come to Califor- 
nia to train during April, May and June, and race at 
a few meetings here before returning home. So the 



chances for big entry lists are good in California this 
year wherever there are good purses hung up and 
the dates are convenient. But dates must be an- 
nounced in February or there will be many places left 
out in the cold. 

Just why the district associations harg back until 
Mayor June to announce their meetings is one of 
those things hard to understand. If the Pleasanton 
association and the Breeders claim the two weeks 
just preceding the State Fair for their meetings, there 
will probably be objections raised by the Woodland 
and one or two other associations that have hereto- 
fore held those dates; but they will be compelled to 
take this course unless Woodland and the other 
places announce their intention of holding meetings. 
The horsemen who want to race in California this 
year will not start their horses in July, or the first 
week in August, and then be compelled to lay up three 
or four weeks without any racing until the State 
Fair. When the circuit starts there must be con- 
tinuous racing in California for several weeks, or the 
horses will be taken north or somewhere they can 
race continuously. It costs money to keep a string 
of horses in racing shape, and owners do not care to 
pay racing expenses for horses that are not racing, 
California should have a good circuit of eight or ten 
meetings every year, but such a circuit cannot be 
organized if associations persist in holding back their 
announcements until after other circuits are formed. 
It is to be hoped that by next week's issue of this 
journal that Petaluma, Napa, Woodland and 
others of the leading towns will know whether they 
will have a meeting or not and be able to announce 
the fact. If these announcements are not made, and 
the derelict associations find later, when they want 
dates, that they have already been taken, they will 
have only themselves to blame. 



Sired the Fastest Wilkes Trotter. 



Since the above was written the following has been 
received from Thos. Smith, manager of the Vallejo 
race track: 

Vallejo, Cal,, Jan. 27, 1904. 
Editor Breeder and Sportsman— You can an- 
nounce that it is my intention to give three or f«ur 
days the second week in August, but I will not close 
them before April or May. Will give three $1000 
stakes and the balance from $300 to $500, or perhaps 
more if the entries will warrant it. Yours truly, 

Thomas Smith. 

The Grand Circuit Stewards Meet. 



The Stewards of the Crand Circuit were convened 
in executive session at the Hollenden Hotel, Cleve- 
land, Ohio, Wednesday, Jan. 20th at 11 o'clock. 
Among the tracks represented were Detroit, D. J. 
Campau; Cleveland, Geo. A. Dietrich; Buffalo, C. R. 
Bently; Empire City, James Butler: Brighton Beach, 
C. A. McCully; Readville, C. M. Jewett; Providence, 
A. H. Moone; Hartford and Cincinnati. A. J. Welch; 
Columbus, H. D. Shephard; Memphis, Murray Howe, 
and Syracuse, A. E. Pcrrin. The first businet s con- 
sidered was the dates. This brought out a sharp 
contest and finally resulted in the following dates 
being selected : 

Detroit— July 18-23. 

Cleveland— July 25-30. 

Buffalo — August 1-6. 

Empire City — August 8-13. 

Brighton Beach — August 15-20. 

Read ville— August 22-27. 

Providence — August 29-September 3, 

Hartford— September 5-10. 

Syracuse — Sept. 12-17. 

Columbus— Sept. 19-24. 

Cincinnati — Sept. 26-Oct, 1. 

Memphis— Oct. 17-27. 

1 he Cleveland Driving Club tendered the stewards 
and newspaper men a banquet at the Hollenden, 
where an elaborate luncheon was served. Toasts 
were responded to by H. K. Devereux, D. J. Campau, 
W. G. Pollock, Andy Welch, Judge Babcock and 
others. 

Steps were taken towards a closer and more per- 
manent organization of the members comprising the 
Grand Circuit, and a committee composed of the 
following gentlemen were appointed: D. J, Campau, 
H, K, Devereux, A, H. Moone, H. D. Shephard, C. 
A, McCully and C, M. Jewett. — Americaii Sportsman. 



An Australian paper speaks of the once famous 
Yankee trotter Commodore trotting a race when he 
was 30 years old. The meeting was at Breakfast 
Creek, Queensland. Commodore was entered under 
the modest name of Jack. His appearance was not 
such as to encourage betting on him. His knees 
showed signs of frequent prayers and his haggard 
and broken appearance generally prompted a funny 
man in the crowd to admonish theatarter to get them 
off before Jack fell down. But Jack showed them 
something they had never seen before. He rattled 
his old bones and the sulky to the wire a long way 
ahead of the field. Commodore had a record in this 
country of 2:23, When sold to Australia he brought 
500 guineas. 



The tribe of Geo. Wilkes has been the great money 
•vinning branch of the Hambletonian family sicce it 
was founded by that great stallion whose gamenefs 
and endurance made him the most talked of horse in 
America. For years past the largest portion of the 
money hung up on the Grand Circuit and at the trot- 
ting tracks all over the United States has gone to 
horses that descended in the male line from the son 
of Hambletonian 10 and old Dolly Spanker. For a 
stallion to have the honor of siring the fastest trotter 
of all the Wilkes tribe is therefore quite a distinction 
audit belongs to Nutwood Wilkes 2:U;j, owned by 
Mr. Martin Carter, proprietor of the Nutwood Stock 
Farm, Irvington, California. He is the sire of John 
A. McKerron 2:04J, a stallion that has reduced his 
record from year to year and is expected to yaftrot 
close to the two-minute mark, perhaps come within 
that time. 

Few stallions have ever stood for public service in 
California that sire a more uniform lot of colts than 
Nutwood Wilkes, and they not only have a very 
high rate of speed at early colthood and improve with 
age, but they have that finish that denotes high 
breeding and stamps them as something above the 
ordinary. When booking mares to a stallion it is 
very important that this quality of finish be con- 
sidered. Horse breeding must be progressive to be 
successful. If there cannot be improvement in looks 
and style as well as speed, then the American trot- 
ting horse is not advancing as he should. But this 
improvement is very evident in many families that 
have descended from William Rysdyck's old horse 
and in none more than the family founded by Nut- 
wood Wilkes 2:16i. Good looks, size and style are all 
found in his get. Then they have the racing instinct- 
that desire to keep in the lead of other horses which 
is absolutely necetsary to making a racing family. 
Their speed comes early, it is of the extreme kind 
and it breeds on through successive generations. 
Nutwood Wilkes has sired John A. McKerron 2:04i, 
Who Is It 2:10i, Claudius 2:13] and Bob Ingersoll 
2:14J, all trotters. 

C f the fast pacers sired by him are Stanton Wilkes 
2:10*, Georgie B. 2:12J^ and the three year old Tidal 
Wave 2:13J. He has twenty more in the list, the 
majority of them trotters. The daughters of Nut- 
wood Wilkes are destined to be great producers. 
There is no doubt of this. They seem to nick with 
all classes of stallions. Nutwood, the sire of Lid a W. 
dam of this horse, is by far the greatest broodmare 
sire yet produced. There are 214 of his daughters 
that have produced standard speed and the daughteis 
of Nutwood Wilkes seem to have the same power to 
reproduce. Very few of them have foals old enough 
to be trained. Not over a half dozen of these foals 
have ever been started in a race, but among them aie 
Caroline L , a high-class trotting mare that took a 
record of 2:13i in the east last year; Iloilo, one of the 
handsomest trotting horses ever seen in California 
that earned a race record of 2:15 last season; Miss 
Georgie, a pacing mare that took a record of 2:25 as a 
three year old and was one of the fastest pacers out 
in 1903. She was second to Ben F. 2:10 in his best 
races, and was separately timed in a race in 2:09, 
Caroline L. is by Simmocolon, Iloilo by Welcome, and 
Miss Georgie by McKinney. Sam Hoy has a trotter 
by Demonio out of a Nutwood Wilkes mare that has 
shown a mile in 2:17. Nearest, a son of Nutwood 
Wilkes, is the sire of the fast mare Alone 2:09J that 
Iiaced a half mile at Petaluma last season in 59} 
seconds. It will thus be seen that Nutwood Wilkes 
is not only a producer but his sons and daughters aie 
producers. The breeding on quality is inherent in 
the family. 

Although there has been an increasing demand for 
the services of Nutwood Wilkes during the past two 
yeare, Mr, Carter has decided not to raise the service 
fee which will remain at $50 for the season. This for 
a horse that has sired the fastest trotter of the 
Wilkes tribe is, indeed, a low figure.

Pleasanton Program. 

Secretary Fred Adams of the newlj or^aoized 
Pleasanton Racing Association announces the follow- 
ing program of the harness meeting to be given at 
Pleasanton and which will open the California circuit. 
The date of the meeting is not yet fixed, but will be 
before the first of March when the entries to the 
stalces will close. The Pleasanton and the Breeders 
associations are only waiting for a few of the other 
associations to announce that they will give meetinge, 
and they will then be ready to fix dates that will be 
agreeable to all concerned. If other associations do 
not announce their intentions before the middle of 
February, they may find there will be no dates for 
them that will be convenient for borsemt n as a large 
number will probably go to Oregon immediately after 
the California State Fair. The Oregon Stale Fair 
will not open until after the Sacramen;o fair and 
horses campaigned in California will thus be enabled 
to race on both circuits, as there will be racing at 
Portland, North Yakima, Spckane, Walla Walla and 
Boise City after the Oregon fair closes. The ofllcial 
advertisement of the Pleasanton program will be 
printed next week. The following are the clastes and 
amounts provided for:

Stakes of Kansas City Jockey Club. 

In another column will be found the advertisement 
of the Kansas City Jockey Club. This, the first meet- 
ing of this new and enterprising club, turely deserves 
the support of all the horsemen, as its stake offerings 
are most liberal, and as there will be no purse offered 
of less value tnan 8.500 added, its daily average dis- 
tribution should be as large, if not greater, than any 
other club during the time of their meeting in the 
west. 

They offerthree slakes for two year olds, thelargest 
of which is $2000 added, the smallest .S1200 added. 
For three year olds they offer the Kansas City Derby, 
one and one-quarter miles, witb .85000 added, and the 
Missouri Handicap, one mile, with $1,500 added. For 
three year olds and upwards they offer five stakes, 
one of these being a steeplechase, called the Hunt 
and Polo Steeplechase. This has $1,500 added. The 
Elm Ridge Handicap, one and one-eighth miles, has 
$.3,500 added, and is one of the richest handicaps 
offered in the west; and the Country Club Handicap, 
one and three-sixteenths miles, has $2000 added, and 
this handicap to be run the latter part of the meeting. 

They also offer a stake for sprinters, six furlongs, 
called Star-Times Handicap, with $1200 added, and a 
Selling Stake, fifteen-sixteenths of a mile, called the 
Kansas City World Stakes, with $1200 added. 

Horsemen should notice that the entrance fee is 
very light, as in the majority of stakes it is only $.5 to 
enter. This stake offering will compare with any 
stake offering in the west. 

The Kansas City Derby is conditioned so that it 
will not penalty the winner of a single Derby; a horse 
to get a penalty must win two derbies, yet non-winners 
of $2000 will have an allowance, giving them a chance 
to even defeat a Derby winner; As to the two year 
old stakes, there is a stake for fillies and a stake for 
colts and geldings, the distance of each being four 
and one half furlongs, each of these having $1200 
added, and the Swope Park Stakes for two year olds, 
with $2000 added, distance five furlongs. 

This meeting will open April .30th, and continue 
nineteen days, closing May 2l8t. The stakes will 
close March Ist. 



The Detroit Kews-Trihune says that the only way 
to stop the practice of laying up heats and to compel 
the drivers to drive 'or each heat is to place the dis- 
tance flag about 25 yards from the finish, then get a 
cold-blooded, merciless individual, who hasn't a 
friend on earth and dosen't want one, to handle the 
flag.' 



Sacramento Driving Club Matinee. 

[Saoramento Union. Jan. 25.] 

There was a fine crowd at Agricultural Park Sunday 
afternoon to witness the harness events given at the 
initiatory matinee of the Sacramento Driving Club 
with owners as drivers The members of the club 
were glad of this manifestation of appreciation on the 
j)art of the public. The members of the club say 
they are simply endeavoring to afford some clean 
sport for the poopie, and they are pKased to know 
that they have not failed to arouse interest in these 
events, which are free to the general public. 

In the first race (milt? dash) Dr. McCollum's Jennie 
H. took first prize by a half length, with Albert 
Elkus' Rosa Gold second and C. W. Paine's Colonel 
third. This Tas a pr«>tt>y exhibition and th« specta- 
tors responded with enthusiastic applause. Time, 
2: 6. 

J. L. Richards failed to show up with Molllr Nourse 
in time for the second race, and F. E. W'right sent his 
black mare Margaretta for an exhibition half in 1:03), 
paced by a running mate. 

F. J. Ruhstaller, Jr., with his Hans clearly out- 
classed, Albert Elkus' Fritz, in the second race (mile 
dash), the official time being recorded at 2:.54. Mr. 
Elkus asked for another trial, which was good natur- 
edly accorded, but the result was equally disastrous 
to Fritz. Time, 2:48. 

The fourth race (mile dasb) brought out three nags, 
Bobby Dobbs, driven by J. Wheeler; Harry R., 
driven by Chas. Rust; Queen S., driven by Captain 
Charles Silva. Bobby Dobbs swerved toward the 
gate just after the start, and was so badly disap- 
pointed in not being allowed to leave the track that 
he went in the air, and came in third. Harry R. won, 
with Queen S. second. Time, 2:31 1. Mr. Rust was 
congratulated on his victory. 

Captain Silva's Duke Cameo was scratched in the 
fifth race, leaving F E. Wright's Royal Dame and 
John Norton's Light Bird to start. Royal Dame won. 
Time, 2:32. 

"Events like this are good for the town, " said ex- 
Mayor Clark at the close of the races. "They ought 
to be encouraged by business men. There is no 
better sport for the people, as will be seen by the 
crowd here today. There is a bigger crowd than is 
often to be seen at State Fair races. These events 
ought to take place at least twice a month." 

Dr. Weldon said that the club's plans provide for 
such meetings every three weeks during the spring 
and summer. 

Judges (who also served as timers) were George H. 
Clark, William Lamport and Dr. E. J. Weldon. 
Walter Tryon served as Marshal. 

It was estimated that there were at least 2500 people 
in the grand stand and quarter stretch. The infield 
contained a great many carriages filled with in- 
terested spectators. 

Saddle Horse Paces Fast. 

The Kenturky Stork Farm is responsible for the 
following bit of news: In May, 1902, Walter H. 
Williams, of Detroit, Mich., bought from a firm at 
Versailles, Ky., a gelding name^ Judge Denny for a 
saddle horse. As a saddle horse he was one of the 
showiest ever seen in Detroit's parks, being able to 
walk, trot, fox-trot, running-walk, single-foot and 
canter; All that summer and fall his owner rode him, 
and about the middle of September had him harness 
broken, i.'p to that time Judge Denny had npver 
worn a harness, and it was after about a month that 
the trainer discovered that' he had any speed, and 
since then it has come to him very fast. Last winter 
Mr. Williams drove him on the snow and he paced 
him along so smoothly that Mr. Williams decided to 
have him trained and worked through the summer. 
He was given slow work all summer, and not until 
late was he asked to show what he could do. One 
day in October, when the CIrosse Polnte track was 
muddy and in bad condition. Judge Denny paced a 
mile Id 2:12}, the last half in 1 :03, and the last quarter 
in 29^ seconds, causing the watch holders to open 
their eyes in wonder. Judge Denny went into winter 
quarters in perfect condition, and the trainer, Sam 
Kerr, thinks he will be good enough for any of the 
stake engagements next season. He is a big, power- 
ful fellow, has lots of endurance, and the mile never 
seems too long for him, as his best flight of speed Is 
at theend. Judge Denny is very well bred, being by 
Time Medium 2:29J (son of Happy Medium), out of 
Nettie Vance by Sherman's Hambletooian. He is 
seven years old. 

Among the best record horses that died during 1903 
were: Arch W. 2:11}; Beuzelta 2;06J; Blonda Red- 
wood 2:08}; Birch wood 2:15; Bell Bird 2:22; Courier 
215; Edna Cook 2:12; Hal Pointer 2:04J; King Charles 
S OW}; Lou Vaughn 2:091; Pixley2:08}: Rllma 2:09J; 
Seneca See 2:11}; The .Merchant, 2:13}; The Swift 
2:09}, and Vendor 2:11^ 



Proposed Change in the Rules. 

Some forty changes In the rules of the National 
Trotting Association will bo submitted to thocongress 
of members, that is to meet In New York February 
lOlh. Some of these changes proposed are not ira- 
lerial, others are important. Besides these It is pro- 
posed to strike out Rule 7, Sec. 1; Rule 20, Sec. 2; 
Rule 21, Sec. 1; Rule 22, Sec. 1, and Rule ti8. The 
rulos struck out arc rendered obsolete or \i8eloss by 
proposed amendments to other rules. An Important 
amendment is in Rule 7, Sec. 1, regulating the entry 
of horses to race meetings as follows: 

The entry shall give the name and address of the 
owner, and if signvd by an agent, the name and ad. 
dress of said agent, also, the name and color of the 
horse, whether a stallion, geld ing or mare the name 
of the sire and the name of the dam, if known; If un- 
known, it shall be so stated in the entry. If any of 
these requirements are not complied with, the offend- 
ing party shall be fined not less than $5 or more than 
$5(1 for each olTcnse. and if the facts are falsely stated 
for the purpose of deception, the guilty party shall 
be fined, suspended or expelled. 

This rule will require drivers and owners fnterirg 
horses to study pedigrees, and will make entries by 
wire rather expensive. 

The change proposed in Rule 5, Sec. 2, is as follows: 

A horse shall not be eligible if the time speclfltd 
has br>cn obtained by him at a greater distance; that 
is, a horse having maae two miles In five minutes shall 
take a record of 2:.30 and be eligible for a 2:30 race, 
but not for a race limited to horses of a slower class 
than that. 

Rule 11, Sec. 7, has been changed materially. The 
proposed amendment is as follows: 

All engagements, including obligations for entrance 
fees, shall be void upon the decease of either party or 
horse, prior to the starting of the race, so far as they 
shall affect the deceased party or horse; except where 
the proprietorship Is in more than one person, and 
any survive, the survivor and horse shall be held; 
but forfeits, also matches made "play or pay,"£ba!i 
not be affected by the death of the horse. 

It is proposed to add a new section to Rule 15, 
which is quite strenuous. It is also an all-embracing . 
rule, a sort of drag-net-rule. It reads thus: 

If any person be guilty of, or shall conspire with 
any other person for the commission of, or shall con- 
nive at any other person being guilty of any corrupt 
or fraudulent practice in relation to racing in this or 
any other country; or who shall have administerf d a 
drug or stimulant internally or by hypodermic 
method prior to or during the progress of a race, or 
who shall have used appliances electrical or mechani- 
cal other than the ordinary whip and spur phall be 
fined, suspended or expelled according to the gravity 
of the offense. 

Rule 28 will be improved with a new section to 
which the alert attention of all race drivers Is here- 
with called. It read.^ as follows: 

After each heat the drivers or riders shall c me to 
the judges' stand and not dismount or leave tbeir 
vehicles without permission of the judges, and no 
driver or rider shall be changed after starting except 
by order of the judges. 

This rule is not ve/-y Important so far as changing 
drivers is concerned, as the judges would hardly ea- 
danger the chances of a horse winning a heat by an 
attempt to change drivers after starting, which 
means, of course, after the starting judge gives the 
word "go. " 

Before the rule is finally adopted by the congress It 
should be made more ipecific. 

There is an important change proposed in Rule 35, 
Section 2, that is vital, as follows: 

The judges shall not declare the deciding heat of a 
race void, unless the winning horse was guilty of im- 
proper conduct in that heat, or h's winning was the 
result of collusion or other fraudulent conduct on the 
part of other contestants in the race. 

A very important rule is proposed, to be known as 
Section 3, Rule 59, the violation of which Involves 
expulsion with no provision for milder treatment by 
the judges. It reads as follows: 

No horse sold or bargained for, conditionally or 
otherwise, after 7 r. M. of the day preceding an en- 
gagement is eligible tocompete. Any person violating 
this rule shall be expelled. 

None of the other amendments and changes pro- 
posed are Important. Race horsemen and drivers 
soould study these proposed amendments carefully 
and if they disapprove of any of the changes forward 
your opinion to Secretary Wm. II. Gochor, Hartford, 
Conn. He will submit your views to the Rule Com- 
mittee of the Twenty-second Congress. The Rule 
Committee will meet in New York, February Hih —

San Jose on Monday next. 



Fred E. Ward, of Los Angeles, has a good green 
trotting mare by James Madison for sale. See ad- 
vertisement. 

The California pacer, Clipper 2:06, is said to be 
king of the snow path in Chicago. He is owned by 
Morris Vehon. 

Trilby Direct 2:081, will be raced over half-mile 
tracks this year by Tom Murphy, one of James But- 
ler's ti ainers. 

Budd Doble and Homer Saxe have sold the Diablo 
colt Diogenes, and he has been shipped to Mexico 
where be will be placed in the stud. 



Citizens of Syracuse will guarantee a $10,000 early 
closing- stake for trotting horses to be made the 
feature of the Grand Circuit meeting there. 



A fine surrey, one of the best made, and handsomely 
finished is for sale at about half its value by the 
Kenney Manufacturing Company, 5H1 Valencia street, 
San Francisco. ^ 

The special edition issued by the Xortit Pacific 
Rural Spirit during the session of the National Live 
Stock Convention at Portland, was a splendid paper 
filled with many interesting and instructive articles. 



The Green Meadow Farm at Santa Clara is offered 
for sale. This is one of the most beautiful and 
thoroughly equipped stock farms in California and 
the price asked font is very reasonable. See adver- 
tisement. 

Stam B. 2:1U, had a larger season in 1903 than he 
did in 1902. The breeders of California are just be- 
ginning to realize that he is one of the highest class 
horses in America, and he will have a heavy season 
this year. 

Lecco 2:093, tli© handsome stallion owned by Ed 
Mills of Pleasanton, has the distinction of being a son 
of the only mare that has ever produced two 2:10 
trotters. That's the sort to breed to. It can't help 
but pay with ordinary luck. 



Blackbird, a mare owned by Grant Stringer, of 
Bouckville, New York, is known to be 38 years old. 
She raised a colt in 1903 and is certainly with foal 
again. It is safe to say there is no parallel case to 
this in the annals of horse breeding. 



Thos. Smith, lessee of the Vallejo track, will give a 
harness meeting during the second week in August. 
Three stakes of $1000 each will be hung up. The 
circuit is beginning to assume shape, and four meet- 
ings are certain: Pleasanton, Breeders, Vallejo and 
the State Fair. 

Henry Dunlap of Pleasanton came down to the city 
this week and purchaied from the Kenney Manu- 
facturing Company one of those handsome McMurray 
sulkies finished in white enamel and trimmed in gilt. 
It is a beauty and Mr. Dunlap says it is one of the 
best running sulkies he ever sat in. 



The wideawake horse owners of Pleasanton are 
strongly agitating the formation of a gentlemen's 
driving club. The Pleasanton Racing Association 
has already been organized and will give one or more 
regular meetings ea'ib year. A gentlemen's driving 
club would be a powerful adjunct to the sport at the 
horse centre and its matinees would draw big crowds. 



There will be a hundred horses in training at San 
Jose before the first of March. The strings of trainers 
C. A. Durfee. J.W.Gordon, W. H.Williams, John 
Phippen, T. W. Barstow and othersare already there, 
and Joe Cuicello, Hans Frellson, J. W. Zibble will 
move to the track in a few weeks. The San Jose 
track is one of the best training tracks in California. 



W. L. Spears recently sold his half interest in the 
trotting stallion Jay McGregor 2:08 to his partner, 
J. L McLain, for $12,.0OO. McLain paid $7,500 for the 
Other half interest, and so now.ownes the fast son of 
Jay Hawker at an outlay of $20,000 He intends to 
keep Jay McGregor in the Jstud for a season before 
turning him over to Scott Hudson, who will again 
take him down the Grand Circuit, 



Mr. Paul R. Isenberg, of the W^ailae Ranch, 
ffawaiian Territory, now owns the pacing mare Ruby 
M. 2:12} by Almont Patchen. Ruby M. is due to foal 
in a few days to a grandson of old Marin 19940. sire 
of the gray whirlwind trotter Marin Jr. 2:13. that 
Pat Farrel developed and raced so successfully on 
the California circuit nine or ten years ago. Mr. 
Isenberg is also the owner of a handsome young stal- 
lion coming thr^e years old that is by Boodle 2:121, 
dam by Sable Wilkes, second dam by Haopy M*-dium. 
This young stallion and several others belonging to 
Mr. Isenberg are being developed at Honolulu by Will 
Morris. 



' It is feaid that dash racing may be given a thorough 
trial at next summer's Grand Circuit meeting at 
Brighton Beach. 

Tom James left for his old home in Des Moines. 
Iowa, last week, taking his stall'on Barondale 2.14J 
with him. We believe every mare Bai'ondale was 
bred to last year is reported in foal. 



If Woodland willclaimits usual date which is the 
week before the California State Fair, the Breeders 
will take the week before Woodland, and Pleasanton 
the week before Vallejo, thus opening the circuit the 
first week in August, and insuring six weeks of good 
racing. 

Searchlight 2:03} never looked better than he does 
this spring. His percentage of foals from the mares 
served last year will be very large. As he had a large 
number of high class mares, the foals of this year will 
doubtless be winning stakes in their two and three 
year old form, adding a value to the foals (.f next 
year. Those who send their mares to him this season 
will be wise. 

Robert Leighton, secretary of the North Pacific 
Racing Circuit, and who was presiding judge and 
starter at several of the meetings held in Washing- 
ton and Oregon last season, has been offered and has 
accepted the position of general manager and clerk of 
the course for race meetings of the California Polo 
Pony Racing Association, which will hold its first 
meeting at Del Monte, February 18th to 22d, inclu 
sive. 

New York will have its annual parade of light-har- 
ness horses thij year, the Road Drivers Association 
again having decided to promote the event that has 
always aroused so much interest among followers of 
the trotter. The date will be May 7, when the asso- 
ciation expects to have an affair of even greater im- 
portance than the parades of the past. Last year the 
plan was abandoned for speedway brushing, but this 
spring there will be brushing in addition to the par- 
ade. 

Millard Sanders, trainer and driver of Lou Dillon, 
the queen of the turf, has written to Superintendent 
Frank A. Turner, of the Santa Rosa Stock Farm, 
where the great mare was bred, regarding the coming 
season with that animal. Sanders complains of the 
cold weather in which he is spending the winter. 
Heretofore he has wintered in California. He de- 
clares his belief that with perfect handling Lou Dillon 
can step a mile in ]:,54 or 1:5.") and this is the only 
thing that could possibly cause him to remain in the 
Eastern climate for the rest of the winter. 



Gentry Stock Farm, Bloomington, Ind., has issued 
a neat catalogue, and we are under obligations to the 
owner for a copy. Mr. Gentry has already received 
in service fees nearly the entire sum of the $25,000 
he paid for McKinney and has been offered $40 000 
for him, which offer was declined. The Gentry farm 
contains 400 acres of choice blue grass land, "the kind 
that made Kentucky famous, " and a band of very 
choice broodmares, several of them California bred, 
has been collected. McKinney is to be limited to 35 
outside mares this year at $200 and next year will be 
a private stallion. 

It is announced that C. K. G. Billings has expressed 
a determination to procure, if possible, the identical 
sulky that Maud S. pulled when she lowered the 
world's champion trotting record to 2:08^, and let the 
public know how fast a mile Lou Dillon 1:58J can trot 
hitched to that vehicle. It is to be hoped that the 
sulky will be loaned and that it will be in as good con- 
dition as on the day Maud S. pulled it in 2:08J and 
that if the California mare pulls it in 2:00 there will 
be no protest made on the ground that her driver 
wore a necktie of a lighter color than the one worn 
by W. W. Bair at Cleveland, July 30, 1885. 



The following telegram from Salem, Oregon, was 
printed in the Oironicle of this city last Wednesday: 
"Charged with stealing Diablo, a pacing stallion 
valued at $5000, C. D. Crookham, a prominent San 
Francisco horseman, was arrested in this city to-day. 
Diablo is held under lease by Sam Casto, a well-known 
Oregon horseman. The owner of the pacer Is Mrs. 
William Murray of Woodland Crookham arrived 
in Salem to-day and demanded possession of the 
horse. This was refused, whereupon he repaired to 
the State Fair grounds, broke open the stable and 
took the animal. Casto promptly caused his arrest. 
He was released on his own recognizance and will be 
given a hearing to-day. Both sides have employed 
tne best of legal talent and a battle royal is expected. 
The whole question apparently binges upon the 
right of Casto to hold the horse under his lease. A 
large number of owners of brood mares who have con- 
tracts on Diablo's services are greatly interested in 
the outcome." 

In an interview in Chicago C. W. Marks, speaking 
for Mr. Billings, says: "As long as there is any 
question over the validity of the record made by Lou 
Dillon to a high-wheeled sulky, braaking the record 
made by Maud S., Mr. Billings does not want the 
record I have heard Mr. Billings talk many times 
of record-smashing, and I know his sentiments, and I 
think I know the man well enough to say that, if 
there is any question of a record held by his mare, he 
is willing to try over again and get the record only 
through the most perfect condition." This is cor- 
rect. With the same sulky that Maud S was har- 
nessed to and under the same conditions, every horse- 
man in the country who has seen Lou Dillon step 
knows that she can beat 2:08J at least three seconds, 
but according to the peculiar decision Lou Dillon 
must draw this same sulky in 1 :58} or betrer or it is 
not a record. She must beat her own best record or 
she can not get a mark. The absurdity of the ruling 
is beccoming more ridiculous every day. 



Mr. A. C. Dietz has re-purchased the pacer Alfred 
D. 2:12} by his good stallion Longworth 2:19 son of 
Sidney. Mr. Dietz bred and raised Alfred D. and sold 
him for $150 as a two year-old. His record was made 
as a three-year old. Alfred D.'sdam is Ferndale Belle 
by Judge Salisbury, he by Nutwood; second dam 
Satinella by Winthrop, third dam Fanny Norris, a 
thoroughbred mare from Kentucky, said to be by 
Printer. In her day she was the fastest mare in the 
State for a half mile. Alfred D. is KU hands high, 
bright bay, and of such a disposition that a child can 
drive him. The former owner says he can drive him 
in two minutes. Alfred D. is undoubtedly one of the 
grandest looking horses in California or the United 
States. 

On the front page of the Breeder and Sports- 
man this week is an engraving from a picture taken 
recently of the stallion Director 2:17, founder of a 
great family. Director is now 27 years old, but is 
strong and vigorous and will doubtless live for several 
years yet and be a useful horse in the stud. He is 
owned by the Locust Grove Stock Farm, at New 
Castle, Pennsylvania. He is now the fire of 58 
standard performers includirg Directum 2:05}, Direct 
2:05J, Nathan Straus 2:05}, Direction 2:08J and twenty 
more with records below 2:20. Over 30 of his sons 
have sired fast performers, and fifty standard trot- 
ters and pacers have been produced by his daughters. 
In his great campaign on the Grand Circuit in 1883, 
he won ten races including one purse of $10,000, two 
of $5000 each, one of $3000 and one of $2500. 



Mr. Ed. Mills, who recently purchased of the Oak- 
wood Park Stock Farm the five-year-old chestnut 
mare Derbertha, has since sold her to Mr. Robert 
Nileg, at present a resident of Pleasanton but formerly 
of Humboldt Co., for the sum of $1500 This mare is 
a grand individual as well as a great bred one being 
by the great sire Chas. Derby 2:20, dam the wonder- 
ful broodmare Bertha by Alcantara 2:23, the greatest 
son of George wilkes. She is, therefore, full sister to 
the great race horse and sire Diablo 5;:09}, Don Derby 



uy oieiuway anu Kjviyuu ^o; oy uwynee. 

Derbertha is a beautifully gaited pacer and as a three 
year-old worked a mile over the Oak wood Farm track 
in 2:16i. She has had no work but will now be 
trained at Pleasanton by the former Humboldt Co. 
trainer. Matt Zahner. Mr. Niles is to be congratulated 
on securing this grand young mare for what seems to 
be such a low price for one of her kind. 

Budd Doble, who will take his stallion Kinney Lou 
2:07^ to San Jose on the 1st of February, will begin 
giving him slow work and not move him up very fast 
until after theclose of his season. May 1st. Mr. Doble 
brought with him from the East last fall a sulky new 
to this Coast, called the Decker. It is a very hand- 
some vehicle, and Doble claims has many advantages 
over other sulkies. The horse can be hitched closer 
than in any other sulky by reason of the bars or 
rather curved axles, of which there are three instead 
of the usual two, all being placed flat against the 
lower side of the sulky seat, so there is no extension 
below the seat. By this plan a gain of three or four 
inches is made in the space under the seat, and conse- 
quently the seat can be that much lower — a great ad- 
vantage. The tubings are all filled with wood which 
prevents the steel from crystalizing or breaking 
through jarring. In both shafts half tubes are set in 
the wood, which makes them lighter and at the same 
more rigid. 

A newcomer to the list of fast trotters during 1903, 
was the mare Caroline L. 2:13}, whose dam is a 
daughter of the California stallion Nutwood Wilkes 
2:16J. Caroline L. was bred at the Ypsilanti Stock 
Farm in Michigan and is by Simmocolon. Her dam 
is the mare Edna Nutwood by Nutwood Wilkes, sec- 
ond dam Sedina 2:28i by Sidney, third dam Star, 
(dam of Hailstorm 2:30) by Geo. M. Patchen Jr. 31, 
fourth dam Lady Primusby Primus, fifth dam Fanny 
McCourtnie. Nutwood Wilkes is rapidly coming to 
the front as a sire of producing mares. Two of his 
daughters have produced Caroline L. 2:13} and Iloilo 
2:15, both trotters, while another daughter is thedam 
of the pacer Miss Georgie 2:25, that was second to Ben 
P. 2:10 in his races last year and was timed separately 
in 2:09 in a race. His son Nearest 2:22 is the sire of 
the champion four-year-old pacing mare of 1902, Alone 
2:09.1. A« item worthy of note in the pedigree of 
Caroline L. is that her third dam is an own sister to 
the second dam of the champion four-year-old trotter 
of 1903, the bay gelding Judge Green 2:10} by 
Directum. 

Judge Dougherty of Santa Rosa has sent to Ed 
Mills to be traioeii his very promising young trotting 
mare Sonoma Girl by Linwood Wilkes 2:20A, dam 
Maud Fowler 2:21J by Anteeo2:16}; second dam the 
great broodmare Evelyn, dam of Roblet 2:12. Tie 
tain 2:19 and others, by the great Nutwood 2:18j. 
This mare is very fast, good gaited and good headed, 
has been handled and developed by Dick Abies at 
Santa Rosa, and is considered by him as one of the 
greatest prospects ho has ever handled. It will be 
seen that she is one of the best bred ones in America. 
Her sire, Linwood Wilkes, was raced by the late John 
Goldsmith as a two-year-old and obtained his record 
of 2:20} that year. Mr. Goldsmith regarded him as 
the greatest trotter ever sired by the great Guy 
Wilkes 2:15}, and offered Mr. Wm. Corbett, his 
breeder and owner at that time, a very large price 
for him, which was promptly refused. He unfortu- 
nately met with an accident wbich prevented his 
further development snd cut his racirg career short. 
His dam was by Sultan Jr 12771, son of Snitan. 
Sonoras Girl's dam is a daughter of Anteeo 2:16}. one 
of Electioneer's best sons, next dam a great brood- 
mare by Nutwood, so as will be seen she carries the 
blood of three of the greatest trotting families, com- 
ing through the best representatives of each family.

The Trotter's Wind Shield. 

The advent of the two-minute trottor and the fasti r 
pacer was received during tht past season with much 
jubilation by horsemen all over the land. Many an 
old-timer'* prediction was fulfilled, and many there 
were who acknowledged the error of their judgment 
as to the impossibility of the feat, but a calmer con- 
sideration of these sensational records bas resulted in 
discrediting or throwing out the same by harness 
horse authorities, and the decision tbus rendered baa 
started a bitter controversy on all sides among horse- 
men. Lot us throw aside all sentiment in the mailer 
and attempt a mathematical solution of the problem 
as to the benefit rendered a performing horse by the 
wind or dirt shield pacemaker. 

On a perfectly still day a horse going around two 
minutes is breasting a wind of 30 milej an hour 
created by his motion. Overcome this force which 
is opposing his speed, either completely or even 
partially, and you will materially accelerate his 
motion by preventing a distressing waste of energy 
to the performer. We will now find what the 
pressure of the air amounts to when no shield is em- 
ployed. For several centuries machines have been 
invented to determine the pressure of wind of various 
velocities. The sails of a vessel under a breeze of 30 
miles an hour stand a pressure of over si.x pounds per 
square foot. Windmill experiments show 4J pounds 
pressure per square foot for a 30-mile an hour wicd, 
while perhaps the most reliable instrument, the an- 
emometer of Dr. Lind, gives 5 pounds per square foot 
for a 30-mile wind. This we will abide by as a con- 
servative figure. The United States Weather Bureau 
uses Smeaton's rule, which gives 4J pounds pressure 
per square foot on a flat surface. Observations in 
Eoeland showed 14 pounds per square foot for a 38- 
mile wind and 42 pounds pressure for a 70-mile wind, 
or about twice as great as Smeaton's rule would gi\e. 

Now the surface presented by a harness horse when 
rushing through the atmosphere, is made up by the 
front part of the horse, his legs, part of the driver, 
part of the sulky, and the fore part of the wheels, all 
of whicb, measured on a present time champion, 
amount to about twelve square feet; however, the 
surfaces whose section is twelve square feet, are not 
flat, but rather spherical or cylindrical; hence the 
pressure on such surfaces is different from that on 
flat surfaces, or is equal to one-half, according to 
Troutwlneand other experimenters. Tbus the two- 
minute horse op a dead calm day, facing a thirty-mile 
wind created by himself, meets an opposing force of 
one-half of five pounds per square foot, or two and 
one-half pounds; and the section of the cylindrical 
surfaces In this case being twelve square feet, we find 
by multiplying twelve by two and a half, a pressure 
of thirty pounds against tbe unshielded trotter. 

Behind the shield, tbe horse benefits most whca 
close up, but benefits some if within any reasonable 
distance. The partial vacuum and suction, so called, 
behind tbe pacemaker certainly withdraw a large 
part of the thirty pounds pressure that would other- 
wise oppose the horse. The dirt shield pacemaker 
shields the horse behind in tbe same way that tbe 
Reliance in the windward position effectually 
blanketed the Shamrock, though tbe two were more 
than twenty lengths apart, and yet some horsemen 
claim that only when the pace follower is less than 
one length behind is be assisted to any extent. 

When the champions of the past year go their 
miles unshielded this coming season we will better 
appreciate the damaging effect of atmospheric press- 
ure on their wonderful records. — Ilxyli E. MvLdwjhlin

Cup Awards at Denver. 

Historian .1. R. Stevens presented his report to the 
Denver Gentlemen's Driving and Riding Club at tbe 
meeting held .January 2d. The club bold twenty-seven 
matinees in 1903, in which ninety-one trotters and 
pacers competed, and thirty-seven heavy harness 
horses competed for ribbons. 

June24th the state track record for road wagon was 
lowered to 2:12J by Martha B., owned and driven by 
J. W. Miller. August Ist the mile racing City Park 
track record was lowered to 2:143 hy Miss Williams, 
owned and driven by George R. Ady. August 2!»th 
the pole team track balf-milo record was lowered to 
l:07i by Daisy Field and Primrose, owned and driven 
by J. Fred Roberts. October lOtb tbe pacing track 
record, half-mile, was lowered to 1:03J by Primrose, 
owned and driven by J. Fred Roberts. October 24tb 
the trotting track record, half-mile, was lowered to 
1:0GJ by Jim Ferry, owned by Wright & Stoddard, 
driven by E. J. Stoddard. 

The following are the five highest making entries 
in light harness events: J. Fred Roberts, 29 races; 
George E. Ady, 20; George M. Black, IX; J. K. Stuart, 
17; Ed Matthews, 15. 

The following are the five highest winners in light 



harness events: Daisy Field, 13 races; Primrose, 7; 
Little Fellow, G; Little Ruby, 6; Daniel J., .">. Cup is 
awarded for most races in light harness events to .1 
Fred Roberts, account Daisy Field. 

Daisy Field and 1 rim rose being a tie for fastest heat 
in a raco, both having won the boat in 1:04, the cupls 
awarded to J. Fred Roberts, account of them jointly. 

Heretofore not more than one cup has been won in 
one season by any member and Mr. Roberts was 
heartily congratulated upon breaking the prize-win- 
ning record. 

One cup was awarded Mr. Roberts lor the fastest 
heat, one for the most entries in races and the third 
for winning the most races. A cup was awarded to 
D. Ilogan for winning the most events in tbe saddle 
horse class and one to N. Fitzell for making the most 
entries in saddle horse classes. 

The officers for li»04 are: J. A. Burnett, President; 
C. H Reynolds, Vice-President; J. K. Stuart, Secre- 
taay and Treasurer: E. D. Davis, Historian. Board 
of Directors — J. Fred Roberts, J. A Osncr, M. J. 
Danloavy, A. S. Donaldson, H. Randolph Guggen- 
heimer and F. C. Came. All the officers were elected 
unanimously. 

A Good Story of "Uncle" George Fuller. 

"Uncle" George Fuller, known from one end of the 
United States to the other and in "furrin [ arts" as 
well, 's dead. He had been practically confined to his 
room for many weeks prior to his demise, which 
occurred at Hermitage, Tenn., on January 7th. Few 
men had more individuality than George Fuller, and 
there was never a season, during his long career on 
the harness turf, that he did not do something to add 
to the history of harness racing. He grew up in the 
"old" school, which developed the "generals" who 
made the killings. About ten years, or less, ago be 
wa? racing something along "for educational pur- 
poses" and got inio a race in Ohio, whicb the judges 
thought he could win, if he tried. They called him 
into the stand in the course of the race to give him a 
lecture. As he climbed into tbe sacred enclosure the 
chief judge said to him: "Mr. Fuller, the people over 
there (waving his hand in the direction of the grand- 
stand) do not think you are trying to win this race." 
Quick as a flash Fuller retorted: "Gentlemen, I don't 
care a cuss what the people over there thin k . I want 
to know what you think." The kinks were all taken 
out of the men in authority; they gave Uncle George 
a mild reproof and that ended the incident. The 
editor of the Kcnturk;/ Slock Farm is in better position 
to recount the good ones Fuller developed and raced, 
and a list of them would prove highly interesting. 
The writer, joining with a host of friends, wishes the 
veteran reinsman peace and happiness beyond the 
grave, and regrets that he could not have been spared 
to enjoy his old age in quiet in his Tennessee home. —

Some Pertinent Suggestions. 

R. L Lee, former owner of Robert McGregor, has 
some very pertinent suggestions to offer for the bene- 
fit of our turf law makers: He says: 

"Tbe fairest method of betting on harness races is 
through the French mutual systein. Here the bettors 
themselves make the odds. Let the associations own 
and operate the mutual machines, and have a suffi- 
cient nuniber to accommodate largeand small bettors 
The French mutual system can just as well be applied 
to the result of tbe race as to the result of a beat, 
and I would have machines operated both ways, 
which would give all manner.of bettors an opportun- 
ity of laying their money as they thought best. At 
all Western meetings may be found scores of men who 
care to bot only a small amount at one time, and pre- 
fer playing heats to results of races. These men fre- 
quently care to bet no more than $2, and, if afforded 
an opportunity of betting by the bookmakers, find 
themselves squarely against a one-sided game, acd 
have but little chance of winning. Frequenters of 
race meetings will wager more or loss msney. It Is 
practically impossible to conduct a harness mce ting 
without some form of betting. This being an assured 
fact, why not give bettors some show In the game/. 

"I have also advocated for many years tnat no 
moro horses should be started in a race than can 
score in one tier, selecting the first two or three 
horses in tbe finish of the first beats for tbe finals, as 
they do in athletic contests. For instance, supposlrg 
that Gfteon horses answered tbe call for a 2:30 trot. 
Divide this number into three fields, and after each 
field bad trotted one beat let tbe horses finishing 
first in the trial heats trot another mile for the first, 
second and third moneys. This method would make 
each race of the kind referred to a four-boat event, 
but only three horses would be compelled to trot 
more than one mile. By this method trotters and 
pacera could easily go two or three races in a week. 
In order to still further make it possible to race a 



horse more than once a week, I would have all entries 

to purse races close the night before the race, with a 
straight r> percent entrance fee, and nothing addi- 
tional from money winners. This would enable a 
man to start a horse two or three times a week and 
avoid getting him in company each time that was too 
fast for him. With an over-night entrance owner* 
should be compelled to pay the 5 p«'r cent fee when 
they made the entry, and this would do away wilh so 
many suspensions for non pay ment of entrance money 
and place associations in shape to raco off their pro- 
grams. 

"Another matter that I have bad under considera. 
tlon for many years is a supremo court for all cases 
coming before tho board of appeals, wherein parties 
feeling themselves aggrieved at the decisions of tbe 
turf courts may have an opportunity of carryirg the 
matter to a higher tribunal. This supreme couit 
could try appeals from both associalionp, and shoull 
bo supported by tho American and National Trotllrg 
Associations. 1 understand that quite large sir king 
funds are being held in trust Cfor whom It is not 
known) by each association, and the cost of a supreme 
court would not cause a deficit in the treasury of 
either. Let some such eminent jurist as General 
Tracy bo named as ono of tho judges of this court, 
and with such a choice place other men equally well 
versed in the law and matters pertaining to harness 
racing, pay the judges a salary that would enable 
them to devote six months of the year to the business 
referred to, and let the court hold annual sessions at 
various points throughout the United Slates, thus 
making it convenient for those having cases before 
the court to attend." 

Emperor William's Saddle Horse. 

Following up his delicate and diplomatic compli- 
ment to Yankee yacht builders in ordering the Meteor 
here, P^mperor William of Germany has paid a grace- 
ful tribute to American saddle horse breeders by 
placing an order for the finest animal of this type 
obtainable in tbe United States. 

Th rough Lord Lonsdale of England, who is a per- 
sonal friend of the Kaiser and also of W. D. Grand, 
the latter has been commissioned carte blanche to 
purchase a horse good enough for the Emperor to 
ride at the head of the German army. 

Appreciating tbe responsibility, as well as tbe con- 
fidence reposed in him, Mr. Grand is determined to 
send the Kaiser an ideal saddle horse or none at all. 
And ho does not hesitate to say heis somewhat doubt- 
ful about obtaining one that can meet all the require- 
ments demanded. 

The animal must be of the color and somewhat of 
the stamp of N apoleon 's famous white horse, as dp. 
picted by Meissonier, De Neuville and Detaille, and he 
must be not under l.").l hand* and not exceed 15.2 
hands in height, with conformation, quality and man- 
ners as nearly perfect as possible. 

Mi. Grand hopes to obtain a Kentucky saddle horse 
that will fill the bill. They .ire conceded to be the 
finest riding horses in the world . Ono difflcul y Is in 
the way, however. Very few of them aro white or 
gray, the prevailing colors being bay, brown and 
chestnut. In speaking of the typo of horse required, 
Mr. fJrand said that a crossbred Kentucrcy-Aiabian 
animal might be of tbe right stamp. Nearly all 
Arabians seen in this country are gray or while and 
very bloodlike and beautiful. It is Mr. Grand s idea 
that Arabians crossed with tho Kentucky siddle 
bred horse would approach perfection for tie pur- 
poses of an Emperor's charger. — Ch\r<t(jn Ifnrfrman.

ROD, GUN AND KENNEL. 



Conducted by J. X. Ue WITT. 

San Francisco Kennel Club. 



W. K. C. Show. 



The club members and officials are actively engaged 
lathe preliminary work for the \pril8how in this 
city. Indications point to a largeentry; the fact that 
premium lists and entry blanks are already in demand 
by a number of fanciers who will make their initial 
entry is an encouraging sign. The list and blanks 
will be issued early and forwarded to every possible 
add resB obtainable; individual requeets for the same 
will be answered promptly. 

The offlce work will be conducted by experienced 
attaches and in a manner that will be satisfactory to 
all concerned. 

Rumor has it that Mr. James Mortimer will be in- 
vited to judge. Mr. Mortimer was herein 1896 and 
1900, he will also be remembered by veteran fanciers 
as the judge of several earlier shows. Mr. Mortimer's 
engagements have always been satisfactory here. He 
has been identified in doggy affairs for a quarter of a 
century and is recognized as one of the best posted 
beach show officials and all round judges in the United 
Slates. He is a writer of authority as well. Our 
premise in the selection, however, is founded on cur- 
rent rumor; we will add that it is the opinion of con- 
servative and leading fanciers that the selection could 
hardly be a better one. 

Referring again to current lumor, we will state 
authoritatively that statements going the rounds to 
the effect that the club has arranged witb Messrs. 
Prank Dole. Ben Lewis and George Thomas to each 
bring out a string of Eastern dogs is entirely without 
foundation. If such action had ever been contem- 
plated by one or more of the club officials the matter 
has been passed in a possitively negative manner. 

Again listening to the chirrup of the song sparrow, 
the story has been circulated that the three high 
lights of the fancy mentioned were coming out here 
this spring. We have tried to trace the story down, 
but cannot get any corroboration. At all events the 
vi'jit will not receive official encouragement in the 
substantia' or discriminating manner intimated. 

Fanciers who might feel a bit discouraged at pro- 
sp ictive Eastern competition may now rest easy on 
that score. 

Reliable information received during the week is to 
the effect positively that there will be a big A K. C. 
show in this city annually henceforth, and that each 
succeeding show will be better than its predecessor, 
tf anpliuation, enthusiasm and efforts for the general 
interest of dogdom will cut any figure in reachingsuch 
a result. 

P. K. L. Meeting in Seattle. 

At a conference of Pacific Kennel League delegates, 
held in Seattle, Wash., January 24th, and partici- 
pated in by representatives of every show-giving P. 
K L. club on the Pacific Coast, the American Kennel 
Club, from which the league seceded seven years ago, 
was extended a final opportunity to grant self-govern- 
ment to Western clubs as a condition precedent to 
their return to that organization. Delegates repre- 
senting the Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle, Tacoma, 
Portland, California Collie, Old English Sheep Dog, 
Pacific Collie and Santa Clara County Kennel Clubs 
were present. 

The demands of the league formulated at the meet- 
ing, io substance contemplate self-government in all 
essential particulars, through the medium of a 
Pacific Advisory Board, which the American Kennel 
Club now maintains on this Coast, but which, it wass 
claimed, is a mere figurehead, with no authority to 
modify existing rules to conform to Pacific Coast con- 
ditions. The delegates expressed slight hope that 
the New York club will grant the concessions de- 
manded. It was determined that, in the event of 
the American Kennel Club rejecting the demands 
made upon it, all Northwestern clubs combine to aid 
the California members of the league, both with en- 
tries and, if need be, with money, to tbe end ^hat it 
may successfully combat with the American Kennel 
Club in that State. 

The matter of the e tablishment of a studbook for 
the registration of Pacific Coast dogs was discussed, 
but action was deferred in deference to the wishes of 
the California clubs who desire to investigate the 
advisability of this step before casting their votes in 
favor of the move. 

The Birmingham dog show, the oldest in the world, 
has passed and gone, and was a successful fixture. 
Instituted in 1859, when a small show of sporting dogs 
was organized, it has been held continuously ever 
since, and has maintained its sporting dog feature to 
this day. Its first president was Viscount Curzon, 
and either a duke or an earl has been its figurehead 
each year since the society's foundation. The show 
is run by a syndicate who own the locale, the Curzon 
Hill (so named in honor of the society's first presi- 
dent), which has become quite inadequate to contain 
the quantity of dogs now benched annually at the 
show. The entries this year reached the record of 
1731, the quality being ((uite up to the average. 



About $10,000 in cash prizes in addition to many 
valuable cups and other trophies offered by clubs and 
individuals comprise the premium list of the twenty- 
eighth annual show of the Westmiaster Kennel Club, 
which will be held at Ma-^ison Square Garden from 
February 10 to 13, inclusive. The premiums will be 
distributed among 42" classes, and the prizes will be 
awarded on the basis of $15 to the winning dog, $10 to 
the second, and $5 to the thi-d. In winners' classes 
rosettes will be given as first prize, while puppies and 
novices will receive a silver medal. 

In the list of special prizes offered by members of 
the Westminster Kennel Club, W. K. Vanderbilt, Jr., 
gives a silver cup for the best Old English Sheep Dog. 
A cup from Harry Payne Whitney will go to the best 
Beagle. George De Forest Grant offers a cup for the 
best Pointer. Andrew Miller, a cup for the best 
Clumber Spaniel; and James McGovern, a cup for the 
best Irish Terrier. A number of medals are offered 
by the St. Petersburg Dog Society for Bloodhounds, 
Deerhounds, Greyhounds, Foxhounds, Pointers, and 
Setters and the Westminster Kennel Club offers $150 
or plate for the best pack of Foxhounds, the property 
of a recognized hunt club, and shown by the M. F. H. 
in hunting costume, and $150 plate for the best pack 
of Beagles. 

St. Bernards will have the Ruppert, Waters, and 
Gould Challenge Cups to contest for, and the Great 
Dane Club of America offers the Presidents' Cup, 
presented by J. Blackburn Miller for the best Ameri- 
can Great Dane under fifteen months old, and the 
Grand Challenge Trophy for the best team of four 
Great Danes. 

Collies are well provided for, the Collie Club of 
America Trophy, valued at $300, going to the best 
American-bred Collie, and the Van Schaick Cup, 
valued at $300, to the best Collie at the show. Be- 
sides the many specials to be given by the Bulldog 
Club of America, the Bulldog Club of Canada and 
the Long Island Kennel Club have offered cups or 
medals in the various classes. 

In the class for Toy Spaniels ihe Champion RoUo 
Challenge Cup, presented by Mrs. A. M. Raymond 
Mallock, will bo given to the best American-bred 
orange and white English Toy Spaniel, but it must 
be captured five times before becoming the permanent 
property of the owner of the winning Spaniel. The 
Crestwood Challenge Cup, presented by Mrs. F. J. 
Sternberg, will be awarded to the best Japanese 
Spaniel, and the Breeders' Cup to the beat Toy 
Spaniel. 

The Ladies' Kennel Club of Massachusetts will be 
prominent in the distribution of special prizes, which 
includes the Grand Challenge Trophy, presented 
by Mrs. J. W. M. Cardeza, for the best Great Dane 
under fifteen months old; the Misses M. L. Harris 
Trophy, for the best Boston Terrier under fifteen 
pounds, and the Officers' Puppy Bowl, for the best 
puppy of any breed bred and owned by a member. 

Premium lists and entry forms can be obtained of 
Jam -s Mortimer, Secretary and Superintendent, 
Townsend Building, 1123 Broadway, New York.

[By One Who Knew Him.] 

On the 19th inst., the coursing world of the Pacific 
Coast lost one of its best authorities and most ener- 
getic enthusiasts in the person of John W. Ronayne- 
Dickson, who passed away at St. Joseph's Hospital, 
in this city, after a lingering illnr sf. 

Born In Ireland in February, 1830, ho was brought, 
when about six months old, by his mother to join his 
father at Newburyport, Mass. At the age of twelve 
years he was sent to learn the printing trade. After 
two years of hard struggle with the art that makes 
the world, he bade it farewell, and took a berth 
aboard the United States sbip-of-war Brandy wine as 
mebs boy to some of the officers. 

For several years he continued with the Brandy- 
wine, visiting many of the Atlantic and Gulf ports of 
the United States as well as Central and South 
America. 

After being paid off from the Brandy wine, he re- 
turned to Newburyport and entered the printing 
business to finish the trade. 

His voyage in the Brandy wine had, however, made 
him discontented with the humdrum village life of 
Newburyport, so when he was about twenty-two 
years of age and the whole world was excited over the 
fabulous gold discoveries oi California and Australia, 
the young man, with nearly three-quarters of the 
men of Newburyport, caught the intoxicating gold 
fever, and determined to be one of its patients. 

At Boston two American vessels were fitting out 
for the Eldorado — one for Melbourne, Australia, and 
the other for California. Unable to decide in which 
place to cast his lot, young Dickson tossed a coin, 
beads being for the Antipodes, and tails for California. 



Heads won, and a few days later the young seeker 
after wealth, with several companions, were sailing 
to the Southern Hemisphere. 

His adventures in the gold fields of Australia wtre 
exciting enough to satisfy the most adventurous of 
spirit. Three times he held faoulously rich claims, 
and three times threw them up to chase "rainbows," 
for as he did not immediately strike rich color he 
believed the claims were "duffers." But those who 
came after and got down to the bed-rock reaped 
riches unthought of. 

Becoming dissatisfied with digging for "rainbows ' 
he tried his hand at cattle and sheep rai^ng, and it 
was on the cattle and sheep farms of Victoria he got 
his first and thorough experience of coursing, or 
rather hunting, the kangaroo with hounds especially 
bred and trained for the sport of all sports. 

It was on the immense plains that he learned to be 
a thorough crosscountry rider, as only a young 
Australian ''back-blocks" rider can be, for in hunting 
the kangaroo unless a man is a superb horseman and 
has finest of nerve, the keenest of eyes, coolest brain 
and quick, good judgment, then look for disaster. 
After coining many a "cropper," young Dickson 
learned that there was no finer sport in the world 
than kangaroo coursing. 

It was while rounding up cattle and sheep that be 
learned of the new Eldorado of New Zealand, and 
although offered a quarter share in what has since 
become one of the finest sheep and cattle farms in the 
world, Mr. Dickson would not remain, the gold fever 
being too strong on him, and had to run its course. 

On the voyage to New Zealand he became acquainted 
with the lady who afterwards became his wife, who 
with her parents and rest of the family were going to 
try their fortunes in the "land of all climates." 

Hissuccessin New Zealand was not much bet'er 
than in Australia, and as the newspapers of that 
colony were offering premiums for printers, Dickson 
again laid down the pick and shovel and handled the 
type once more. For several years he continued 
steady at the business, and marrying settled down as 
a man of affairs. He soon accumulated wealth, and 
founded several newspapers in the colony, all of which 
are prominent'and thriving at this day. 

In the great depression of the seventies, which 
taxed the strength of the richest corporations in the 
colonies, he lost all of his wealth. With but a few 
pounds saved out of the wreck of hie great fortuce 
he came to California in the early eighties. 

For years in New Zealand he was a prominent 
patron of all sport, but coursing was his greatest de- 
light. He owned several very fine and well known 
Greyhound?, which all earned substantial prizes. 

Here in San Francisco be was about the first to 
ad vocate and introduce enclosed coursing, and when 
about eight years ago he purchased the Valifomia 
Turf and devoted a portion of its columns to the 
sport, the coursing fraternity was backed up to the 
upper notch. So hard and well and long did he labor 
for his favorite pastime that he lived to see it become 
the leading sport it is at present in California. 

For years he contributed articles on coursing in Cal- 
ifornia to local and Eastern newspapers under the 
noin de plume of 'Gazehound"; and these articles were 
quoted in sporting new spapers throughout the world. 
Many of the opinions he promulgated in these articles 
to-day stand as authority, showing that his judgment 
did not err. Within the last few years, however, be 
was wont to allow the more youthful and energetie 
scribes to exercise their ideas and opinions, and then 
would commend, or pleasantly show the errors in 
their remarks. Although he could at times be an ex- 
tremely bitter writer, yet very, very seldom did be 
permit his cool judgment to be overcome by the heat 
of the argument. 

He was an extremely pleasant man to talk to, with 
always a kind, sympathetic word for everyone. 
Thousands have received ficm him money which he 
could not in the least afford. The writer recalls 
walking with him along Montgomery street one even- 
ing when one of that thoroughfare's numerous "pan- 
handlers" stopped him for alms. The old man looked 
at the fellow for a moreen t, put his fingers in his right 
vest pocket and immediately withdrawing it, handed 
a coin to the man, saying: "There, may it do you 
good ! " As we passed on, I asked: "What have you 
left yourself^ " "Oh, that does rot matter; I'll see 
David," referring to his son. David happened to be 
in the country, but the "good Lord did provide." 

The late Mr. Dickson was a great reader, and with 
his extensive travels, was a very entertaining conr- 
panion. He had a great many sterling friends in San 
Francisco, and was always wont to speak and write of 
them in the highest terms. For the last two years 
his mind was failing rapidly, and at times he could 
not remember the simplest incident. He was remark- 
ably food (if flowers and the beauties of nature. His 
favorite walk was generally through Golden Gate 
Park, which he considered to be the most beautiful 
of the many parks he had visited. 

In New Zealand a widow and grown family mourn 
his death, while in San Francisco his son David lives 
an invalid. In one of his notebooks are these fare- 
well lines: 

. . . Songs have power to quiet 

The restles.s pulse of care. 
And come like benediction 

That follows after prayer. 

Mr. Lew Pierce, of this city, has recently received 
from the East a Boston Terrier dog and a French 
Bull bitch. Coquette is a handsome brindle and won 
3d novice of the L. K. A . show last fall in New York — 
a good win in warm company. The Boston is a Ch. 
Remlik Bonnie young dog, 19 months old and it is 
claimed was among the ribbons at the Ladies' and 
also the Boston Terrier show at Boston. Both dogs 
will be entered at our spring show. 



Matt. Coffey, the popular secretary of the Sacra- 
mento Kennel Cub, has been appointed Chief of 
Police of the capital city. We wish him success in 
his new vocation. Chief Coffey's fancy runs to Col- 
lies; he had a kennel of four on the bench at the 
December show.

Origin of Some Names of Dogs. 

The Setter originally was a dog used by game hunt- 
ers who captured the birds with a net. The dog 
would locate the birds; the netters would then spread 
their net over the ground where the birds were. The 
dog was trained to set on its haunches while the net 
was being laid. 

The Spaniel is so called because the original breed 
of this beautiful and intelligent typecamo from Spain, 
and tb^ 6rat arrivals in England were called Spanibh 
dogs. 

The Spitz dog got its name from its sharp pointed 
nose. "Spitz" means "sharp point" in German, and 
the Spitz was a favorite German breed before be be* 
came known in England and America. The Spit/, is 
known also as Dalmatian dog, because his native 
home is Dalmatia. 

The Dachshund is another German breed, and his 
funny name — almost as long and funny as the dog 
himself — is a German name, meaning "badger dog." 
The original Dachshund was used for drawing 
badgers, and thedogt still are great favorites among 
Gdrman hunters, although the breed has now become 
a little too delicate for lighting such a gray old war- 
rior as the badger. 

The Fox Terrier earned his name, not from any 
fancied resemblance to the fox, but because long ago, 
in the daysof "merrie England," these terriers, much 
larger and stronger then, were used everywhere by 
sportsmen for drawing and killing the fox, they being 
sent down into his burrow. It is said that no good 
Fox Terrier ever backed out of a burrow without his 
fox. If he came out be had the dead fox gripped. If 
be didn't get the fox he didn't come out, but died 
there. 

The Bulldog used to drive cattle, and as he was 
trained to meet the rushes of the bull by seizing him 
by his most sensitive point — the nose — the sturdy, 
brave dog came to be known in time as Bulldog. In 
some countries he is known as bull biter. 

The beautiful Blenheim Spaniel is named after 
Blenbeim Castle, wLere this dog Qrst was made fash- 
ionable in the time of the great Marlborough. The 
King Charles Spaniel owes its name to the merry 
monarch. 

The various breeds of hounds to-Jay are called 
hounds because they are the present survivors of the 
time when all hunting dogs were used to hound ?ame. 
In theearly hunting days of England every dog that 
WAS used to accompany the hunt was selected mainly 
for his speed and endurance. There were hounds 
that were supposed to follow the game by scent, and 
others who were supposed to sight it a long way off, 
but all were expected to be able to run t.he game 
down. C'lasequently, while the name of hound, or 
"bund" in tje ancient Saxon, was first used for all 
kinds of dogs, It finally came to denote huntlngdogs 
only; that Is why we call our running dogs hounds 
to-day, such as Greyhounds, Rabbitbounds, Blood- 
hounds, .Wolfhounds, Boarhounds, Deerhounds, etc. 



Frank F. Dole states that four of bis dogs died at 
his kennels In New Haven from distemper during the 
last month, at a loss of over 81000. The dogs lost 
included three noted prize winners, the Boston Terrier 
Edgewood White: Bull Terrier Gold Dollar II; and 
the Bull Terrier Edgewood Justine. 



The Late M. C. Allen. 



Merton C. Allen, for many years a well known 
newspaper man of this city, and more recently a 
deputy in the office of the City and County Treasurer, 
passed away Sunday morning at the Lane Hospital. 
He had been ailing the past four months from tuber- 
culous peritonitis. Two weeks ago bis condition 
became BO serious that he was compelled to take to 
his bed. He *as subsequently removed to the 
hospital, where an operation was performed last 
Friday morning. 

He was several years ago an enthusiastic devotee 
of trap shooting, and was a prominent member of the 
Olympic Gun Club and of the California Inanimate 
Trap Shooting Association. 



Egg Diet for Sportmen. 



The streams of California are to be enriched by a 
wealth of fish unprecedented in the history of the 
State. Many thousands of these (mail fry will be sent 
to the different counties for planting in the local 
streams. The California F'ish CommiftioB has up- 
ward of 30,000,000 salmon eggs In process of hatching 
at the Sisson hatchery, and 6,000,000 at the Eel river 
station. Over 28,000,000 young salmon have been lib- 
erated In the headwaters of the Sacramento river 
within the past two months, making a total of over 
60,000,000 salmon eggs which are handled jointly by 
the United States and California Fish Commissions. 
The largest number ever handled before In this State, 
In 1897-98, was 48,000,000, a gain of 12,000,000 eggs for 
the year, and represents the largest number of salmon 
eggs ever handled In any .State In one season. They 
were collected by the United States Fish Commission 
at Baird, on the McCloud river, and on Battle and 
Mill croeks. The United States P"'ish Commission Is 
making a shipment of .500,000 eggs to New Zealand. 
With the exception of about 2,000,000 eggs hatched 
at B lird, the remainder Is being bandied by the Cali- 
fornia Fldh Commission.

Wild Game Reservations. 



An important meeting was held in Fresno, says the 
Uepuhlican of the 24lb Inst., with reference to the 
ostaLlisbment of game refuges in the furebt rebcrve. 
President H. T. i'ayne of the (.'allfornia Fibh and 
Game Protective asisoclatiun was here and with him 
were tbe members uf tbu special commniiilee fur ttie 
Sierra re»orvo appointed by tiim, consihting ol (ieorge 
\V. Stewart auu J. Sub Juliiisunuf Viaaliaaou S. U. 
St. John ana Andrew 1). Fergusun of this county. 
Joseph Barcrult, o( Madera, wbo ib the liltb member 
of tbe commltiee, was uuablu lu be jtrosent. 

"There is a bill ponding in I'ongreati," said I'resl- 
dent i'ayne last night, tn explaining the objccib ot the 
meeting and what has been dune, "autburi/.ing the 
Department of the Interior to set apart corlaiii dis- 
tricts of the forest reserves as game breecilog refuges, 
where there shall never be any shuotini* anu no game 
shall ever be killed. At tbe last meeting of our ussu- 
ciation. In discussing tbe matter, It was pointed out 
the Department ol the Interior could by no posttl- 
bility possess any agent so familiar with the localities 
as to b« able to makelnielllgent selections of land for 
such refuges. So I was instructed to appoint a com- 
mittee in each of the districts that woiilu be affected 
to be composed of men thoroughly aci|ualnted with 
the country, who would select the favored ground 
and recommend such selections to the department. 
The meeting today was the second that has been 
held, the first having been held at Santa Barbara last 
week, when two locations were selected, one of three 
townships and the other of about two in tbe Pine 
Mountain and Zica lake reserve. 

"The committee to-day went into the subject very 
thoroughly and while tbe recommendations are In a 
measure In abeyance awaiting the submiision of the 
suggestions to Mr. Baroroft for his approval, it was 
agreed that there should be three locations recom- 
mended to be set apart for game refuges — one of five 
townships in Tulare county, one of six or seven town- 
ships In this county and the other in Madera county . 

"These refuges will be shut to the hunter for all 
time and the game will resort to themtolivo there. 
In the winter, as the cold forces them into the lower 
country, they will l)e protected by the State law. In 
the meantime the refuges will be breeding grounds, 
and as the game of all kinds shall multiply, tbe in- 
crease will find the way to the outside and the shoot- 
ing will be better for all the people of the country. 
It is tbe one way to save wild game from analhlla- 
tion." 

Colonel Payne will go to Del Rey to-day to vish 
friends there and will go home to San Francisco to- 
morrow. " 

It is getting along to the end of the month and sal- 
ary day Is nigh, for Colonel Payne, as he Is known in 
some places, is by vocation a paid State deputy fish 
commissioner. 

Game refuges are without doubt a very good thing 
and will do much to saye "a valuable food supply for 
tbe people. " In the pending bill there is surely some 
provision for the selection of the game refuges and 
any contingent expense necessary. The Department 
of tbe Interior could possibly make a good selection 
also. 

Just why the California Fish and Game Protective 
Association can have this work done at the expense 
of the State is a puzzle that many sportsmen would 
like to have solved. Particularly so, as one of the 
principal reasons urged for Inability to patrol fishing 
waters and hunting districts, it has been claimed. Is 
theinadequateannual appropriations and correspond- 
ingly small force of field deputies. "We can't be 
everywhere you know, and we do the best we can on a 
small appropriation." Possibly the "Colonel'' was 
on a vacation and the work was performed gratui- 
tously, for tbe "Colonel'' is a preslstent and enthusi- 
astic worker and has the courage of his convictions. 

Several years ago, he deemed it his special province 
to purge local and Coast dogdom of Tr&ay, to him, 
objectionable features that did not meet tbe approval 
of his critical eye. He wrought vigorously end kept 
at it until he was disqualified by the American Kennel 
Club; dogdom was in the throes »f dissolution and 
the Pacific Kennel League was hatched, phoenix like, 
in the a«hes of the weekly (conflagration attributed to 
the Colonel'f. fiery pen. 

Nowhehasgoce to the other extreme, for after 
nearly killing ofT the dogs, 'be now wants to save all 
of the game and fish; every continental fin, fur and 
feather. If he keeps on it may, in the near future, 
be a crime to kill a duck. He has succeeded in making 
it a crime to sell a quail, but, we will stay with him 
on that proposition, that has accomplished some 
good — hut It was bad for the Crows. 

Deputy Fish Commissioner Payne is an adept in 
getting notices from the interior presp. The question 
arises with sportsmen and taxpayers as well, why is 
it that he is invariably mentioned as President 
Payne of the California Fish and Game Protective 
Association, or as Colonel Payne, never as a paid 
state deputy fish commissioner. 

If we are not decidedly mistaken the State pays 
his traveling expenses and salary — in fact we once 
beard the Colonel state at a meeting of the associa- 
tion in this city, that ho would do the necessary 
proselyting work free of expense to tbe association, 
which was a very magnanimous nffpr. 

Why Is the state board continually sidetracked and 
placed in the undignified position of footing the bills 
and allowing the credit to go to an association that 
could not muster a larger attondanoo than was present 
at the last annual meeting of the much vaunted state 
association of sportsmen at Paso Robles. As a rep- 
resentative organization the attendance of sportsmen 
was sadly lacking. 

We have heard the Colonel described as a "cuckoo, " 
but of course, in a spirit of jocular admiration for his 
great executive and argumentative abilities The 
steering committee of the "apostles of game protec- 
tion" seems to be hatching eggs right along in the 
state incubator. 



Why Game Birds are so High. 

"Game dealers and shippers have fouod a new 
enemy who is robbing them," says the Kansas City 
TimtK. "Not only are they harassed by the game 
wardens of the different localities, out of which thoy 
attempt to ship game birds, unlawfully, but many 
packages are being tampered with by railroad and 
express company employes while en route to their 
destination. It is said on good authority that two 
express messengers running l>etwecn Texas and 
Kansan points, make a pracilce of robbing the hunt- 
ers who ship game north, surreptltiou»ly. They 
have boxes of their own and when they take on 
parcels which contain game they take out as many 
birds as they can without implicating ihrmtelvir. 
These they consign to game dealers in New York 
and Chicago. The birds sell for digh prices. Quail 
sell for $4 and *.'» a dozen and prairie chicken for $10 
and 912 a dozen. One messenger is known to have 
taken 371 quail and 92 prairie chickens from a parcel 
received in Oiclahoma. Another package shipped 
from South Canadian, Ok., was short I'ld prairie 
cbicKens and 2^0 quail when it reached Us destination. 

It is unlawful lur the railroad and express com- 
panies to carry game illegally killed or bought. 
Dealers and shippers resort to many rchemes for 
shipping birds. They place thtm in all sorts of 
pacKages and disguise shipments as much as pos- 
sible. Trunks are frequently used. At Weather- 
ford, Texas, the dealers attempted to ship birds in 
coflin boxes. They had dilHculty In securing the 
necessary death certificates and wrre obliged to u»e 
other means. 

Tbe hunters and shippers who forward game to 
market do so at their own risk. The combination of 
watchful wardens and pilfering messengers has dis- 
couraged many old-time hunters. Indirectly, It hat 
made prices for quail and prairie chicken almost pro- 
hibitive." 

When an individual is engaged, profitably, la an 
illegal business, there can always be found hungry 
cormorants who are watching for the chance to get a 
rake-off, no matter by what means, for the "quiet 
license" collector knows his victim dare not "squeal." 
Of the two the fellow who does the skinning Is the 
worst. 

Kansas City can not be the only place In the United^ 
States where game and fish are for sale Illegally. For 
the little bird says again that quail have been'openly 
sold In our local markets recently and that the stalls 
in the fish marKets have had, scarcely hidden from 
ordinary observation, boxes of underweight striped 
bass. We don't believe It, however, for the Fish 
Commission has made a spurt or two recently and 
several arrests, convictions and fines followed. 

Chief Deputy Vogelsang and Deputy A. F. Lee re- 
cently made a trip to Trinity county and were suc- 
cessful in arresting and subsequently convicting ff,ur 
men for killing does. This conviction was made after 
1900 mile.s of traveling by rail and stage, hack and 
forth In gathering evidence and trailing the suspects. 
The arrested were F. and H. Chad bourne, G. Nelson 
and F. Rathbone of Sulsun. They were taken before 
a WeavervlUe justice, two trips being necessary, it 
seems, to make the arrests. The Chadbournes were 
fined $.")() each and the other two S2."i each. 

Bravo! a 1900 mile trip is a task that not every 
ofHcer would have the temeritv to tackle when there 
is a possible chance of rounding up "big fish" in this 
city. 

In the arrest and conviction of Mr. and Mrs. Crow 
a fortnight or so ago, "it is believed that the mystery 
of the arrival of quail in the local market, to the con- 
sternation of the deputy game commisf ionerp, has 
been solved. F'or a long time the deputies have been 
baffled in their attempts to learn who it was that was 
bringing quail and selling the birds tocommitsion 
merchants contrary to the law which prohibits (slis 
being made," said a morning contemporary in pub- 
lishing the usual game violation guff. 

Mrs. Crow was arrested at a commission bouse 
while in the act of selling a basket full of game. 
Deputy J. C. Ingalls made the arrest and ho says he 
saw the negotiations for the sale being conductid. 
He took charge of the woman and hooked her at the 
City Prison on a charge of violating the game law. 

He tracked Mrs. Crow from the ferry building to 
the commission house. Ingalls says that with her 
husband and, ho thinks, another couple, Mrs. Crow 
lives in camps which are moved about in Alameda 
county to meet the exigencies of the occasion. The 
men make a business of huntirg and Mrs. Crow brings 
the birds across the bay, concealinir them in a basket 
which would not arouse any suspicions. " 

The Crows wore fined $2.') apiece for cause. 
Nevermore will the woi.drous basket bring enough 
<|uail to market to sujiply the hotels, clubs, restau- 
rants and retail dealers with the quantity necessary 
to fill the loc i demand for the toothsome quail. The 
('rows' goose ii cooked. 

From the reports, which wo now believe were un- 
reliable. It was thought that there must have been 
many hunters epgaged in many districts in the illegal 
traffic. This idea grew out of an old story resurrected 
from the past, when it was legitimate to sell quail in 
market, that the commission dealers would dally or 
twice a week send out a circular of prices for game, 
or that they would send special requests for so many 
dozen to be used in filling particular orders, etc. But 
all this must be ovor now and naught is left of tbe 
practice save a memory. 



Salmon fishing In Monterey bay was, early this 
week, first class, there being an immense run of fish 
on. Several large salmon were taken, one fish weighed 
over 40 pounds.

GOSSIP FOR SPORTSMEN. 



The open season for quail Ln San Mateo county will 
close on February 15th. The season has not been 
favorable to good sport. Limit bags have been the 
exception. The scarcity of water and feed has icept 
the birds generally 'o the most inaccessible regions. 
The hatching of young birds, too, was far below the 
average. 

Two sportsmen (/) of liedlands, San Bernardino 
county, recently killed 150 quail in a day's hunt. So 
proud were they of the exploit that they had the 
bunch of birds photographed. A copy fell into the 
hands of the Fish Commission, and as a result, each 
hunter was arrested for exceeding the limit, and paid 
a fine of $25, 

Los Angeles sportsmen have had generally a good 
duck shooting season. Last Sunday excellent bags 
were the rule on the marshes, and the shooters re- 
turned at night satisfied with the day's sport. John 
Hauerwaas, Gen. C. F. A. Last and a party of local 
sportsmen shot over the Green Wiug marshes and 
were fairly successful. Limits were brought in from 
one of the Ballon* grounds, the killing being mostly 
sprig and widgeon. 

The Canadian blue ribbon trap shoot, the Grand 
Canadian Handicap, live birds, came oflf at Hamilton, 
Can., on the 14th inst. The principal event, 20 birds, 
27 to 32 yards rise was participated in by 43 shooters. 
In this race, eight high guns served ]!» birds each, 
there was an exceedingly lively lot of pigeons trapped 
this year. Each of the eight shooters used a Parker 
gun (the "Old Reliable"). In the shoot-off H. M. 
Mayhew was first and Harry Klrkover was second. 

The target events took place on the 12th and 13th 
insts. J. H. Graham (one of the live bird high guns) 
was second high gun at the inanimate target traps. 
The meeting was the 14th annual tournament of the 
Hamilton Gun Club. 

Duck shooting, according to the Solano Eepitblican, 
had improved on the marshes near Solano county 
recently. A fortnight ago the storms of the previous 
week had the effect of driving ducks from the bay to 
the marshes, and most hunters who were out on the 
17th inst. secured good bags. 

A hunting party consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis 
Pierce of Suisun, Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Ford of San 
Francisco and Mr. Gus Bloom of Chicago, enjoyed a 
good day's shoot at Mr. Pierce's Boynton ponds. 
Over 80 ducks were bagged. 

Mayor W. H Bryan and District Attorney T. T. C. 
Gregory killed over twenty ducks each at one of the 
Stewart ponds. 

There was a full attendance at the Suisun Gun Club, 
ten hunters killing over 250 ducks. Those who en- 
joyed the shooting were: J. C. Klein, editor of the 
Oakland Heruld, Wickham and Harrold Havens, J. 
R. Burnham, Waller Woods and C. H. WethprV>y of 
Oakland, Joseph Peltier, Attorney Allen L.Ghlcker- 
ing. Doctor Proctor and Arthur Goodfellow of San 
Francisco. Mr. Wetherby remained at the club 
house until Thursday morning. 

The following bags were made on the "Bunco" 
ponds a weeK ago: Meyer Dinkelspiel 25, Milton 
Emigh 14, Ben Reams 20. 

Dr. A. G. Bailey and Geo. C. Gordon bagged 26 
ducks on the "Bunco" ponds. 

Otto Feudner, Walter Cooper and two friends of the 
former bagged 100 ducks on the Stewart ponds. 

H. Coffin, of the firm of Baker & Hamilton, 3an 
Francisco, was the guest of Clare Morrill on a hunt. 
They killed 40 canvasbacks and mallards. 

Attorney Louis Titus and J. Juster of Berkeley had 
a successful shoot on Joyce Island, Sunday, the for- 
mer securing 35 and the latter 16. 

Oq Monday of last week Geo. K. Harding and L. H. 
Pimentel bagged 60 ducks on the slough 

Supervisor D. M. Fleming and Dr. V. E. Turner, of 
Vallejo, accompanied by Sheriff James A. Keys and 
J. A. Wilson, spent two days of last week in a hunt 
on the Abe Crump place on the Sacramento river 
near Rio Vista and succeeded in bagging 135 ducks, 
108 of which were mallards. 

J. A. Wilson and J. W. Harper killed 26 snipe on 
the ground between Union avenue and the railroad 
in the northern suburbs of Suisun last Friday 
evening. 

Rev. James Hall and J. C. Musser bagged a good 
8 trlng of ducks on the slough last Saturday. 

James W. Boa, the Winchester representative, won 
high average on targets at the Hamilton Gun Club 
tournament on the 12lh and 13th insts. 



Harvey McMurchy, the genial representative of the 
Hunter Arms Company, is due in the city about the 
end of February. "Prince Mac" will get here just 
too late for duok shooting, a sport he used to enjoy 
immensely on the ponds near Alvarado. 

A great many San Jose sportsmen are taking ad- 
vantage of the few remaining days of the open season 
for tha killing of ducks and quail. There has been a 
great exodus of hunters to the marshes and mount- 
ains during the week and all report excellent sport, 
so stales the Mcrt:ury. ' 

Duck hunters have especially been well rewarded 
for their efforts. The birds are now more plentiful 
on the local marshes than they have been at any time 
during the open season. There are thousands of toal 
and canvasbacks with a good sprinkling of several 
other varieties, especially widgeon and mallard. 

The late storm has had a tendency to drive the 
birds from the open waters of the bay, and they have 
sought shelter In the inland sloughs where they fall 
an easy prey to the skillful hunter. Duck bunting 
win now continue good. It Is claimed, until the end of 
the season, In fact canvasbacks will continue to bo- 
come more plentiful as they are still arriving in large 
numbers from the north, they being the last birds to 
geek shelter in the warm waters of the south. 



Robin and quail hunters have found good sport 
throughout the county during the week, and several 
have secured large bags of the birds. Numerous llocks 
of pigeons have been driven from the high mountains 
by the cold weather and they are to be found in the 
hltls back of Los Gates and back of Evergreen. 

Frank Coy kendall left last week for the San Joaquin 
country in his yacht on a duck hunting expedition. 
He did not find very good shooting until he came to 
"Old River, " situated between Stockton and Tracy, 
where he states that there are thousands of ducks 
and that he bad- the best shooting he had had in 
years. Mallard predominate, and it was an easy 
matter for him to secure the bag limit every day 
without any great effort. His brother, Rache Coy- 
kendall, left on Thursday to join in the sport. 

Ed Draper and Tom Taggert of San Jose recently 
returned from a two weeks' duck hunt near Pesca- 
dero. They report that the tide water at the mouth 
of Pescadero Creek was closed and that a big lagoon 
had formed and the water was backing up very 
rapidly, and if the bar formed is not soon opened the 
water threatens to flood the town of Pescadero. On 
this lagoon were thousands of ducks and shooting was 
at its best. Sportsmen from Santa Cruz and other 
neighboring towns went there and a great amount of 
game is being killed. Any hunter can easily secure 
the bag limit of fifty birds in a day. Hunters who 
cannot gratify their wishes at other places will surely 
be able to meet with success in that locality. Besides 
being an excellent spot for duck shooting, there is 
also e.xcellent quail and wild pigeon shooting back in 
the hills. 

Willis Laine and Louis Wanderer of Santa Clara 
went to Murphyson Wednesday where a large flock 
of pigeons had made their appearance. They suc- 
ceeded in bagging all they could carry. 

John Decost bagged a long string of ducks and 
snipe in the fields north of Milpitas during the week. 

B. F, Van Horn of Santa Clara returned from a 
week's quail hunt in the Bayou country back of 
Mount Hamilton. He says there was plenty of snow 
and that It was an easy matter to bag game. He 
killed many quail, two large wild cats and a beau- 
tiful red fox. 

Emile Houssoy was one of the successful duck 
hunters at Alvlso the past week. He returned to San 
Jose with a bag of 33 "cans" and teal. 

Van L. Suggs bagged 25 quail last Sunday between 
the Guadalupe and Los Gates. The birds are quite 
tame since the storm. 

Thos. S. Burnight is about again after a severe ill- 
ness and has gone to Carmel in Monterey county for 
an extended quail hunt. He will hunt on the ranch 
of Joseph Stewart, which Is one of the best quail 
grounds in Monterey county. 

George Keesling found excellent shooting on the 
Alviso marshes Friday. He reports ducks plentiful 
since the rain and that shooting will now improve 
until the end of the season. 

Dr. W. E. Wadams of Santa Clara continues to 
make his weekly pilgrimages to his favorite hunting 
grounds at Alviso. His last string secured consisted 
of 46 fat birds. Dr. Wadams is one of the best shots 
in the county and is always sure of a good string of 
game if there is any to be had. 

Louis Maggini bagged a number of "cans" at Warm 
Springs the other day. 

Manfred Qulmby, the crack shot of Agnews, bagged 
a number of teal along the ditches near the asylum 
the other day. Snipe are also very plentiful In that 
vicinity. 

H. M. Jamison, J. S. Parker and R. L. Jamison 
have returned from the San Joaquin, where tbey 
hunted ducks and geese for a week. They came home 
by way of Pacheco Pass. Duck shooting at Los 
Banos was a disappointment, although they managed 
to kill a few birds. 

Otto Feudner with C. G. H. Macbride and Dan 
Flannery of San Jose shot a combined bag of over 100 
mallard, teal and sprig on the Stewart ponds last 
Sunday. 

L. H. Klmmel, one of the coming shots of the West, 
broke 124 out of 125 clay birds at Bosco, 111., on Jan. 
9th. This is remarkable shooting on the part of an 
amateur; It was done with U. M. C. factory loaded 
shells. The Sunny South Handicap held at Brenham, 
Texas, January 18th to 23d, was won with U. M. C. 
shot shells. Turner E. Hubby, Waco, Texas, won 
the live bird event with a straight score for three 
days. W. H. Heer, Concordia, Kans., took the handi- 
cap for targets. Perfect scores show the quality of 
U. M. C. ammunition. 

The U. M. C. party of shooters is organizing gun 
clubs throughout the South, which In a very short 
time will be organized into state leagues. The shoot- 
ing interests of the South have in a large measure 
been neglected, and the party is endeavoring to revive 
the Interest. Mayor Tom Marshall reports that it is 
quite a popular fad to organize ladies' clubs. What- 
ever Tom says goes among the ladies. 



Members of a recent hunting party who were on 
the Osage reservation, Indian Territory, state they 
saw wild pigeons in flights in the hills north of the 
Arkansas river. 

The disappearance of the wild pigeon from the 
United States, where once it abounded in vast num- 
bers, was a remarkable event, and the sportsmen 
have never been able to learn the cause. The persons 
who saw wild pigeons in the Osage country were fa- 
maliar with their appearance years ago, and are posi- 
tive that the birds are pigeons. The pigeons wore 
senn at different places. One hunter saw a single 
pigeon in full flight southward and two other hunters 
saw two pigeons, also flying south. It is alleged that 
a few wild pigeons have been seen this fall in the 
Illinois marsh land east of St Louis. 

Western sportsmen are interested in knowing 
whether the pigeons in the Osage country were 
natives that have remained undisturbed in the remote 
hills since early days, or whether they are strays 



from South America, where the pigeons are supposed 
popularly to have gone. One of the largest roosts in 
the United States was in the Cherokee nation, south- 
east of Tahlequah. 



Salt water fishing in the southern Coast waters has 
been excellent recently. Last Sunday there was an- 
other big run of pompano and kingfish at San Pedro 
and East San Pedro. From early morning until dark- 
ness came the wharf on the Terminal Island side was 
crowded with fishermen, and in front of the wharf 
small boats were packed In until it was almost Impos- 
sible to move. And everybody got fish. Up to 11 
o'clock in the morning the pompano were in evidence 
all along the wharves. The school appeared to leave 
about that time, but they returned at 4 o'clock, ard 
after that the anglers had great sport. The schools 
offish remained right around the East San Pedro 
wharves, and It was a poor fisherman who did not 
pull up at least three fist at one haul several times 
during the day. It was no uncommon sight to see 
a fisherman have four or five fish on his hooks at one 
haul, and this was repeated every few mil utes. 

This fish is not the pompano of the Gulf waters and 
Is generally known as the butter-fish, being a native 
of Japanese waters. 

An.y number of hooks may be employed in catching 
the kingfish. Half a dozen is not an uncommon num- 
ber, and to have the majority of them filled when 
the line Is pulled up Is not considered much of a feat 
in angling. The kingfish is despised when other kinds 
are plentiful, but are excellent eating durirg the win- 
ter, as their flesh is hard and of a fairly good flavor 
then. 



Carl Schmidt of the firm of Graef & Schmidt, 107 
Chambers street, New York, Importers of fine cutlery 
and American representatives of J. A. Henckelp, died 
Sunday nignt, January I'tb, at a private sanitarium in 
New York, where he had been undergoing treatment 
for an abscess since January 6th. Mr. Schmidt gave 
his attention only to the large trade between Chief go 
and the Pacific Coast, coming to the New York house 
usually twice a year to overhaul his samples, his wife, 
son and stepdaughter living in Pasadena, California. 

Mr. Schmidt was born in Berlin. Germany, in 
December, 1843, coming to the United States as a boy 
and working his way unassisted to an honorable and 
influential place in the trade solely by his own un- 
assisted efforts. He was of a genial and sunny dis- 
position and it is said of him that his customers were 
also warm friends. The firm of which he was a part- 
ner was established by Wm. R. Graef and himself in 
January, 1884. The funeral services were held at the 
Stephen Merritt Chapel, New York, and the remains 
cremated at Fresh Pond, Long Island. The business 
will be continued along the same lines as hereto- 
fore. — Iron Age. 

Save the Birds. 



The Audubon Societies, through their organ, Bird- 
Lore makes an urgent appeal to the women of 
America to abstain from using aigrettes. It is claimed 
that the herons from which these aigrette plumes are 
taken are rapidly approaching extinction. The 
dealers' offer of $32 per ounce for raw plumes tempts 
hunters to defy the law, and It Is believed that if 
woman does not abandon the use of aigrettes the 
white herons throughout the world will be extermi- 
nated. 

Bird-Lore publishes a detailed statement of the 
facts in the case by William Dutcher, which can be 
obtained in leaflet form from the National Committee 
of Audubcn Societies, 525 Manhattan avenue, New 
York city.

THE FARM 




Baby Mutton. 

Baby mutton is a production railed by 
farmerj and stock growers which, if put 
upon the market at the earliest, would 
give quick returns and higher prices to 
theoirner. Tha majority of marketers 
prefer to buy yearling lambs, rather 
than run the risk of encountering the 
flejh of a wool-bearing sheep, which is 
never fit for food, writes O. Irwin in 
Epitomist. Southdown, Leicester and 
Cotsvrold are the best breeds raised for 
their flesh especially, as they yield a 
tender, juicy, highly flavored mutton 
which is entirely different from the fleth 
of a wool grower. 

The fat of baby mutton is clear, hard 
and white, while the lean is firm, juicy, 
finely grained and a darkish red in color. 
Baby mutton can be marketed when the 
lambs are ten and sixteen weeks old, and 
some as young as eight weeks. Their 
weight at these ages should be forty-five 
pounds. The condition of weight is de- 
termined somewhat accurately by feel- 
ing the brisket and the tail near the 
body. 

A high degrea of fatness is more im- 
portant than weight, as they sell by the 
carcass rather than by weight. The 
weight of two lambs being the same the 
younger one will bring the highest price. 
The evidence of age is the fleece and the 
degree of ossification oil in the bones. 
Growers of mutton who wish to market 
their lambs for baby mutton should feed 
early and push the lambs, as the first 100 
pounds cost much less and bring more 
than the second 100 pounds By selling 
at the earliest and at the highest prices 
the owner can save enough in time and 
feed in the first ten or twelve weeks to 
more than pay for the price he will re- 
ceive when a year old. 

It is not always the weight of stock 
that brings the largest profit to the 
owner when sold, but it is the quickest 
time in which he secures the most for 
bis Btoc'f at the least cost for feed. This 
is aquestion that should be studied more 
by sbe3p growers, the same as the ques- 
tion of "baby bsef, " about which much 
has been said in the farm papers. 



Green Bone. 



My experience with cut bone as a food 
for fowls extends over two years only with 
a flock of 100 liens, writes W. V Adams in 
Farmer's Voice. Prior to that time I had 
not used cut bone. 

I get a soup bone of the butcher, shave 
off the meat (a little meat won't hurt if 
you intend feeding as soon as cut) and I 
feed the same day it is cut. 

Some people make the mistake of using 
bones that have been ijoiled or lain out 
sun bleached. Some of the most essential 
feeding value of the bone has thus been 
lost, especially aa feed for growing chicki). 

For growing chickens, after two weeks 
old, I mix the bone meal with corn chops 
dampened with curd milk (water will do), 
so that each bird gets from a half to one 
teaspoooful of the bone meal, according 
to age. 

Extra large and quick growth bone in 
fowls means more meat, and more meat 
means 7 to 10 cents per pound. 

For laying hens 1 feed as aViove, only 
that each hen gets one tablespoonful 
twice or threo times a week, according as 
I think she may need an extra allowance. 
Hens need more when they are laying or 
molting. 

Taking every advantage gnined by feed- 
ing bone— i.e., general health of flock, 
quirk growth of broilers, increase in 
amount of eggs, etc., over the two years 
bone was not fed — I figure it (and I keep 
close account) that the profit derived is 15 
per cent over the profits of the two pre- 
ceding years. This 1.5 percent is attrih 
uted t ) the bone feed, and the other in- 
crease in profits was credited to the source 
from which they came. 

Now, don't Teed any overdose at first, 
or, at any time for that matter; feed 
regularly. 



Correcting a Setting Hen. 

AiJNEW. C.\L., Jan. •_'.'», 1;h14, 
Editor Brkei>f:r and Si'ortsm.w: 
I naturally read with interest anything 
pertaining to poultry, and when I see 
what I think a better way for doing a 
thing [ like to present my plans for 
comparison. In the Ukekhkk ami 
Sportsman for December loth I saw a 
plan for correcting broody hens by con- 
finement in coop. With us we simply 
turn the ben into another yard among a 
lot of hens she is not acquainted with, 
and her desire to get back again so occu- 
pies her she forgets to hvnt a nest, and 
in three days regains her composure, so 
to spsak. If any of your readers have 
these conditions to contend with they 
should try my scheme. It Is a good one 
and sure. Very truly yours, 

W. S. Sullivan,

The Tulare I{ctj»'tcr is enthusiastic over 
alfalia. Its says; "The more you cut 
alfalfa the more it thrives. One tivonty- 
live acre lield in this State in one year 
yielded $L>000 worth of hay. It will hunt 
itj own water from below if you will give 
it a start. Its roots go down fur ami rap- 
idly into the earth. A mining tunnel was 
excavated in Nevada IL'O feet below an 
alfalfa field and roots of alfalfa were in 
the roof of the tunnel. It has l>een

sity Farmers' Institute at Pasadena. 
1 have selected for my theme "Feeding 
and Care of Stock," meaniiig to discuss 
the most advantageous methods of feeding 
and caring for stock, both from an eco- 
nomic and sanitary point of view, and my 
remarks will more particularly apply to 
horses. 

In no branch of veterinary science is it 
more important to possess an accurate 
knowledge of the conditions which are 
present in a state of health, as well as 
disease, than in the care and treatment of 
the teeth. It is always by a thorough 
knowledge of the appearance of an organ 
during health that we are enabled to dis- 
tinguisli any deviation from that condition. 

The Horse's Teeth— Horses of ullages 
suffer more or less from long, sharp and 
projecting points which are found on the 
molar teeth. They are located on the in- 
side of lower and outside of the upper 
grinders, and occasionally also on the in- 
side of the upper ones; they vary in size 
and shape, some being small and blunt, 
while others are long, thin and very sharp. 
The injuries they inflict are lacerations of 
the cheeks and tongue, and a limitation 
of the lattral motion of the jaws, unless 
this motion is extensive enough to permit 
the whole crown of the tooth to come in 
contact with the food to be ground, much 
of it will not be reduced to a proper con- 
sistency. Other difficulties also arise, 
such as decay, ulceration and malforma- 
tion. 

Having thus briefly accounted some of 
the difhculties to be overcome before we 
can reasonably expect food to be of the 
most benefit, it would seem superfluous to 
caution you as to who should be employed 
to rectify the defects. Doubtless many of 
your number are painiully reminded tiiat 
the country is overrun with a class of 
people who designate themselves veter- 
inary dentists. I'ossiblv, however, you 
are not aware of the fact tliat there is not 
in the world a place of instruction where 
veterinary dentistry is taught, if we ex- 
cept the veterinary colleges, where it 
forms a part of the curriculum, and is 
never given as a sole study. 

As well set a hod carrier to mend a 
piano or a typewriter as to expect a per- 
son unfamiliar with anatomy and physi- 
ology to correct the irregularities of so 
delicate a structure as the mouth, 

A horse should be fed with reference to 
what he is to do. The horse doing slow- 
but hard and exhausting labor, should be 
generously fed on grain three times a day, 
with as much clean, sweet hay at night as 
he will entirely consume, bearing in mind 
that the hay in this country, unlike the 
grass product of the prairie states, is rich 
in grain, therefore much more nutritious, 
and a less quantity is requisite to satisfy 
a natural appetite. There is an inclina- 
tion on tlie part of most horse owners and 
hired help to feed vastly more hay than 
is required, under the mistaken idea that 
they are being generous to the stock ; but 
horses, if they are permitted to do so, will 
develop abnormal appetites, besides often 
wasting more than they will consume. 
We have seen that the stomach of that 
animal is relatively smaller than that of 
most other animals. This being the case, 
it is obvious that if permitted the horae 
will, even after filling it to repletion, and 
distending it to an extent that materially 
limits muscular contraction, continue to 
force more into it, thus compelling the 
pyloric orifice to open for the passage of 
aliment only partially prepared for future 
adaptation and final assimilation. In 
addition to this, the distention of the 
stomach limits by pressure the action of 
tlie- lungs, thereby curtailing a proper 
amount of oxygen being absorbed for the 
clarification of the blood, besides causing 
a retention of poisonous carbonic acid gas 
in the system. Neither should a horse 
be permitted to drink immediately after 
feeding, as by this course the stomach is 
filled with a fluid that dilutes the saliva, 
gastric and other digestive tluids, and 



washes the contents of the stomach into 
the intestines, producing looseness and 
scouring; while on the contrary if com- 
pelled to take of water 1 efore feeding, he 
has no abnormal thirst, and takes only 
such quantities as is necessary to give 
proper fluidity to the t'.ssues of the body. 

Under the subject of hay we have in 
this country four principal varieties, viz: 
Wheat, barley, oat and alfalfa. Of these 
I am constrained to believe that the for- 
mer, if well oured and clean, is by far the 
most suitable for horses used exclusively 
for draft purposes. It is rich in fat-pro- 
ducing qualities, and while succulent and 
wholesome, if cured careful'y, and not too 
green, seems to assimilate nicely, but the 
consumption of it by driving horses does 
not seem fruitful of a condition of fitness 
for road purposes, as does that of either 
oat or barley hay. Oat hay of a good 
character appears to te the most satis- 
factory provender we possess for road 
horses; the chief objections to barley hay 
is the annoyance that the beards produce 
in making the mouth sore, and that it is 
so rich in fibrin-producing elements, that 
some individuals become atllicted with 
skin affections which prove very refrac- 
tory and troublesome. Alfalfa hay, I 
think, is of more value for broodmares, 
colts and unused horses than for other 
purposes. It has good milk and fat- 
producing iiualitiee. 

How to Save — Economy sometimes 
dictates a carefulness akin to stinginess 
in feeding. In cases where one's finances 
compel extreme caution, it were best to 
expend what money we have to spare for 
the best products we can procure, and 
then cut and moisten the hay, which, by 
the addition of a little bran and middlings 
well stirred, makes a cheap, effective 
food, a measurably small quantity of 
which, fed fresh and unfermented, makes 
strength and satisfies the appetite; but 
some uncut hay should be used in con- 
junnction, however, very materially less 
than if the cut mass had not been 
administered. By this mode of procedure, 
from one-third to one-fourth of the 
ordinary expenses of the "keep ' of the 
animals may be saved, and their health 
remain unimpaired. 

Of grain I should say that for driving 
horses, oats are by far the most satis- 
factory. They seem to have the needed 
material for bone and muscle building^ 
and do not produce excessive fat, which, 
n a gentleman's driver, renders him 
loggy, disspirited and easy to fatigue. 

Barley is admissible in the winter 
months where fat and its consequent 
warmth is desirable, but under any cir 
cumstances during enforced idleness and 
over Sunday, both hay and grain should 
be materially reduced. In fact, it were 
better if the latter were taken away en- 
tirely, and a well made mash of bran 
substituted. 

By observing these last instructions 
you will undoubtedly save your horses 
many an attact of colic, azoturia, lym- 
phangitis and other complaints that are 
fre<iuently fatal and always call for the 
expense attending the visit of a veter- 
inarian, to say nothing of the drugs and 
nostrums you may administer. 

It becomes more manifest to me every 
year that we feed our stock more hay 
than they require to keep them in a con- 
dition of health and fettle commensurate 
with their comfort and our requirements, 
and while it is impossible to lay down 
any rule that will apply collectively to 
the horse family, I am led to believe that 
the ordinary horse that consumes more 
than fifteen pounds of hay, at either one 
or two meals in twenty four hours, is eat- 
ing and destroying more than is good for 
either him or his owner.

RITA H. 2:11 1-4 

Pacing Mare by McKinney 2:11 1-4 

ELECTRO McKINNEY 

Brown Colt, Four-Year-Old Trotter by McKinney 2:11 1-4 

RITA H. is a dark brown mare who stands nearly 16 hands high, and will weigh In racing trim 
aljout 105<i lbs This mare has had this year a very remarkable record. She started In the North- 
western Circuit in the States of Oregon and Washington, and out of eight starts won her first seven 
races and only lost four heats during the entire circuit, and has a pacing record of i.i\H. The mare 
is Qye years old and Is excellent on the road She does not pull or lug, and a lady can drive her 
anywhere. Last spring she trotted a workout mile in 2: 18^4 and repeated in2:l6'4, after only neven 
weeks' work. Her owner has driven her in 2:12(4 In the Los Angeles Driving Club races, she having 
won all of them in which she started. This mare can step two heats below 2:lu. 

ELECTRO McKINNEY Is a brown stallion foaled in 1900, and stands \a hands 1 Inch in height. 
He trotted a full mile as a two year-old in 3:3l\4, last quarter in 35 seconds, and when a three-year- 
old a full mile in 2:2114, last quarter in 32 seconds. He is perfectly gaited and a grand individual in 
every respect. Weighs about 950 lbs. ELECTRO McKINNEY is bred in the purple, and Is one of 
the best sons of MoKtnney alive to day McKinney is undoubtedly the greatest sire tor his age, 
living or dead. ELECTRO McKINNEY was not raced last year, being only a three-year-old and 
not entered In any stakes It was decided to hold him over. 

These horses are all r'ght and there is not a thing the matter with them, but my business 
demands are suoh that I cannot afford to devote any time to racing them. For prices and farther

A Sidney Stallion With Earning Capacity 



In pursuance of my intention to retire from the business of breeding horsep, 
and having disposed of all my broodmares at auction, I now ofiFer at private sale 
the stallion 

William Harold 2:i3i-4. 

His sire is the great Sidney 2;195, grandsire of the champion trotter of the 
world, Lou Dillon l:58i, and bis dam the great race and broodmare Cricket 2:10 
(dam of four in the list) by Steinway, the greatest son of Strathmore. 

WILLIAM HAROLD is a producer The only two of his get to start are 
that wonderfully fast trotter Janice 2:08J^ and the pa^er Dan Burns 2:15. 
WILLIAM HAROLD'S services in the stud were very limited up to three years 
ago, as he was raced. His weanlings, yearlings and two-year-olds are very prom- 
ising and have size, good loolcs and great natural speed, besides being uniform in 
color, nearly all bays. He is a sure foal getter, is in the very best condition, sound 
and healthy, and with ordinary good business management can earn in the stud 
in 1004 the price asked for him.

REPEATING SHOT GUNS 

A CHANCE FOR A DOUBLE 

A QUESTION often asked about Repeating Shotguns if, "How quick can a second shot befired with 
them?" Shooters that have used llepeaters answer with one accord: "Doubles" are just as easy to 
make with a WINCHESTER REPEATING SHOTGUN as they are with a double barreled 
gun. The third shot that a Winchester Repeater gives often bags a badly crippled bird which otherwise 
would get away. Winchester Repeating Shotguns are made in "Take Down" styles in 12 and 16 gauge.

THE FIRST TWO official announcements of har- 
ness DQeetings to be given in Californva this year 
will be found in our ad vertising columns this week. 
Nearly twenty thousand dollars in purses and stakes 
are offered by the associations making these announrc- 
meots, the Breeders giving 81-3,70O and the Pleasantcn 
association $<>000. This is excellent for a starter and 
two or three more meetings will give us a circuit that 
will be worth while. Mr. Thomas Smith of Vallcjo 
assures us that his program will soon be ready to an- 
nounce and that he will give three tlOCM) stakes. Mr. 
Smith gave a meeting last year and had two $1000 
Stakes on the program and found that it paid. The 
smaller towns in California cannot afford to give an 
entire program of thousand dollar events, but that 
much money hung up for a slow class trotting race 
and also for a slow class pacing event will eccure 
enough entries to make the stakes self supporting.' 
The State Agricultural Society will give a few of the?e 
big stakes for harness horses this year, so that the 
outlook is good for owners of good horses that have 
records no bttter than 2:20 ateitber gait. The great- 
est drawback to a successful circuit in California is 
that few of the associations have any regular and 
active organization. In the district boards it is often 
hard to get a quorum as a majority of the directors 
take but little interest in the fairs, and the secretary 
is not paid enough salary to pay him to devote much 
time to the association's business, except during the 
time the fair is held. To make an annual race meet- 
ing successful the secretary should devote nearly his 
entire time to it throughout the year. In many 
districts the secretary is not paid over $150 per year 
for his services and no man can afford to put in very 
much work for that. There is now an excellent op- 
portunity in a dozen ton ns in California for the for> 
mation of harness racing associations, which should 
be organized for profit and not consist of more than 
three or four active men who are interested in the 
sport and desire to see it honestly conducted. A profit 
of from $1000 to three or four times that amount can 
be made by a bustling active organization of this kind 
that has the support of its towns people. All that is 
needed is a good, live secretary that will be enabled 
by his salary to devote his time to it. He need not be 
a person thatis thoroughly conversant with the game 
as any man of average ability can learn the duties of 
secretary by a few weeks' study and application. 
There are splendid opportunities in California for the 
formation of several organizations whose purpose will 
be the giving of annual race meotiugs. If Vallejo and 
Pleasanton can give profitable meetings, surely places 
like Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Napa, Woodland, San 
Jose, Fresno, Stockton, Red Bluff, ''Jhlco, Colusa and 
many others can do as well. 



'THE STATK DAIRY BUREAU has justcompleted 
^ the compilation of statistics of the butter and 
cheese output of California during the last year. It 
is shown that the increase over the output of th« pre- 



ceding season was .1,07*>,213 pounds. The total out- 
put for liHl2-0.T was 34,6T(i,.lll pounds. That of the 
preceding season wag 31,ij28,763. The Increato 
amounted to about 10 per cent. Allogelber the dairy 
output amounted in value to $20,4.tC,l.".2 for the last 
season. Secretary Saylor of the Stale Dairy Bureau 
claims that the dairy interest Is the largest income 
producerof any single line of industry in California. 
The gold mines of Califurniu have al way s been con- 
sidered the State's greatest wealth prt)ducer«, but 
the figures show that gold mining rou»t take Fecocd 
place to dairying. The products of the California 
dairies brought three million dollars more in 1903 
than the mines produced. As the dairy industry is 
only just beginning in California, many of the 
counties best adapted to it having no dairies and 
making no butter for export beyond their borders, it 
is evident that the future will see marvelous develop- 
ment in the output of I'aliforniB dairy products. The 
Orient and the isles of the I'aciflc will ho a great field 
for their consumption, and the California cow will 
bring in more gold to the State than her mines and 
vineyards. 

-rilE SULTAN OF MOROCCO has f-rnt to Pre^i- 
*■ deat Roosevelt ai^d family six thorcughhrtd 
Arabian stieds. TUehorseintended for the Prchide nt 
is a white stallion, and two or three mares are among 
the remaining five intended for distributicn among 
the Pretidetil'f family. The Bkkedkr anpSpokt.s- 
MAN suggests that Mr. John Gilmer Speed, the mag- 
azine writer who has been bewailing the fact that 
there ii no distinct type of American horse, and never 
will he unless the Arabian blood ho used, have the 
position of Stud Master for the American Nation 
created lor him and that he be directed to take charge 
of these horses and proceed to found a family of 
American horses that will be of that distinct type 
which ^Ir. Speed and .Mr Randolph Huntington have 
agreed upon as the only perfect and useful one. Gen" 
eral (Jrant was sent a couple of pure blooded ,\rabian 
stallions while he was President, hut did cot do much 
with them as he could find a trotting bred s'.allion in 
nearly every county in the country that was a superior 
animal, but perhaps .Mr. Speed can evolve a breed of 
horses from this Arabian consipcment that will make 
the fabled winged Pegasus look like the proverbial 
thirty cents. 

MR ROBERT LEIGHTON, Secretary of the .North 
Pacific Fair Association, reached San Francisco 
last week, having been engaged by the California 
Polo and Pony Racing Association to manage its 
meets that will be held this P'onth at Del Monte and 
Burlingame. Mr. Leighton is thoroughly posted on 
the rules and regulations of the class of sport and un- 
der his management the meets at Del Monte and Hur- 
Jingame will be successful l)eyond a doubt. .Mr. 
Leighton tells us that the North Pacific circuit of 
racing was a most successful one last year but that 
the directors expert to make it still more so this sea- 
son. Some little ditliculty was had in selecting dates 
that were agreeable to all concerned, bnt when the 
schedule was finally adopted there was a general 
accjuiescence and every assccialiog ' n that circuitis 
now working to make the season an entire success. 
Mr. Leighton will not re-turn home until after the 
first of March. 



Traders Must Make Good in Russia. 

There is nothing so distressing to the average horse- 
man as an unsound horse, and -nothing so embitters 
the feelings as to come into possession of one through 
a trick. It is the one thing which a man will never 
furg' ve or forget. A misfit in clothes or the purchase 
of inferior articles in the vegetable or meat market 
may be overlooked and the patronage continued, hut 
no man will return a second time to the person who 
has deceived him in a horse trade. Deception in th'a 
department cuts respect and friendship like a knife. 
In Russia every person who has a horse is obliged to 
furnish a certificate of ownership. If a horse is sold 
this certificate must be produced and transferred to 
the name of the purchaser. The one who sells a horse 
is to be responsible for its good condition, and he 
must return the purchase money and pay a fine if he 
deceives the buyer in nis representations of its health 
or age. If a diseased animal is sold and infects the 
purrhaser'sstock, the seller must pay all damages 
and be tried before a criminal court. American 
horsemen compare favorably, perhaps, with any other 
class of commercial people, and the) reputable dealer 
is always willing and anxious to right a wrong when 
it is made to aj ' ■ ' it ' I' llon that the horso 
was not right •' •imes when thitt is 

not apparent tlr "a sacrifice rather 

than be suspected of wrong doing.— /y/>r»«»i<in. 



A royally bred McKinney stallion, good sizo, hand- 
some lofty carriage and a fast borte as well, is offered 
for sale for $.V)0. Ho was foaled In 18ft8. See adver- 
tisement of Russell Mc. In this Issue. 



Lou Dillon's Grand Sire Today. 

".Marque, " the* well known correspondent of the 
y/or.«c lio Uir writes as follows: 

During my travels last week I visited Sprlngvale 
Farm, Orege n. 111., owned by Judge J. H. Cartwright, 
of the Illinois Supreme Court. Judge Cartwright, it 
will be remembered, purchased Sidney 2:l!iJ last .May 
and placed him at the head of the< farm's stud. After 
Sidney's brilliant showing In California in IHS'.i to 
ho was brought East, sold and taken to Michigan, 
where for nine years he was practically buriid. His 
decade spent in .Michigan Is to bo deeply regretted, 
for I am advised that he was bred to but a few mares 
while there. The old adage that "You can't keep a 
good horso down" has again proven true, for now 
that Lou Dillon has brought her grandsire into 
prominence again he Is well situated to take ad- 
vantage of it. 

It was my first sight of Sidney and, of course, I was 
anxious to see if there was any resemblance between 
the two-mil lite roaro and her grandsire. N'o two 
men see horses precisely alike, but I believe that any 
onefamiliar with Lou Dillon would agree with mc in 
the statement that she is a Sidney from her withers 
f orward — but behind is as unlike him aa Is possible, 
Sidney has the most peculiar back I ever saw on a 
horse. From his coupling to bis tall he is almost 
perfectly horixontal, having scarcely any slope to his 
rump. This conformation is said to come from the 
Yoluat33r fam'ly — Yolunteer sired Sweetness 2:21 J, 
Sidney's dam. Lou D. lion, on the contrary, is quite 
high at her coupling and her rump has a pronounced 
slope, being very similar in this respect to that of 
Nancy Hanks. Her shoulders, like her grandsire's 
are full made and highly developed, as are also bar 
forearms. Like Sidney, Lou Dillon has the thorough- 
bred type of neck, it being fiat, sharply defined and 
beautifully crested. The mare's head Is, of course, 
finer than her grandsire's, but the general outline 
and cxprei'sion is the same, likewise the markings, 
both having a star and a white snip on the nose. 

Sidney, although t went V - three years old, Is re mark- 
ably well preserved and retains his spied as well as 
vitality. He is driven every day and was recently 
brushed very fast on the streets of Oregon, much to 
the delight of the townspeople. He is a little horse, 
but has the ways and bearing of a gamecock, in which 
he also reninds me of Lou Dillon. 

Judge Cartwright owns twenty-five well bred mares 
and Sidney w'll be bred to these as well as outside 
mares the coming season. With one or two exceptions, 
all the mares bred to bim in 1903 seem to be in foal. 



Some Promising Horses. 

Mr. J. W. Zibble has seventeen trotters and pacers 
in his stables at the corner of 20th and Point Lobos 
avenues in this city. He Is jogging them over the 
park roads, but expects to move to San Jose 
or Tanforan within a few weeks. Tom i-'mith 
2:I3J is looking like a champion and Allesandro, 
2:40 that won so impressively as a two year old 
In Colorado last year, owned by Mr. Ceorge 
Warlow of Fresno, is growing into a magnificent 
horse. A light sorrel pacer owned by Mrs. Hamilton 
of Marin ^county is one of the best green prospects 
Mr. Zibble has had for some lime. He was sired by 
Meridian 2:12]. 

At the annual meeting of tbo shareholders of the 
Kentucky Association of Trotting Horse Breeders 
Florace VV. Wilson was elected secretary to fill the 
position made vacant by the death of the late E. W 
Shanklin. .Mr. Wilson succeeded Ed. A. Tipton as 
secretary of this association a good many years ago 
and took up the reins when the society was in the 
moMt II lurishing shape, with a big surplus in the bank 
and no del'ts wort h mentioning. 1'nder his manage- 
ment prosperity continued, bnt amost fiattering offer 
from the Empire City folks in New York induced him 
to resign. He went to Gotham and remained there 
somo time hut later disagr'-ement with the owners of 
the trick led him once more to seek a now field, which 
he found as the secretary of the Charter Oak track 
and IhoO.ikley track in Cincinnati, both the property 
of Jones iV Welch. The management of those two 
courses .Mr. Wilson still retains, and he has therefore 
assuredly made a record in his line for no man ever 
before wa?* the secretary of threeof the (irand (Circuit 
associations in three difterent cities as widaly sepa- 
rated as Lexington, Hartford and Cincinnati. 



Knap McCarthy made a good suggestion at Chicago 
recently where a group of trainers were discussing 
matters of Interest to horsemen. Ho said: "The 
associations, especially the National, hate accumu- 
lated a large sum of money which should be used for 
purchasing a home for old and disabled traim rs. 
Tho trainers have furnished all that money and there 
Is no legitimate use it ran bci put to by the associa- 
tions. Tho trainers should commence to agitato this 
subjrrt and 1 believe they wo-ild have tho support of 
tho hree'dors, owners o' rnnipalgning stables and the 
public. Tl . ' • ii hand to ourcliase 

agoodfan ily equip It and if 

extra fundt* • i ji nefits during the 

season would do the) trick There Is not a track 
manager In the county but would wllilnely sot aside 
one day for such a meeitlng and the public would re- 
spond In a liberal manner."

JOTTINGS. 1^ 



Strong 2:09J, Dillon Boy 2:09^ and Dan T. 2:07}. 
Ethel's Pride 2:13i and Sadie Mao 2:11^, three year- 
olds, and Judge Green 2:10}, a four-year-old, were in 
the list of those winning over $5000. 



A GOOD TROTTER that has no record but is 
capable o' stepping three heats around 2:15 will 
be able to earn more money in California this year 
than could have been won in the same class last year. 
The offering of $1000 for 2:24 class trotters by the 
Pleasanton Association, and of $2000 for the same 
class by the Breeders will be followed by a purse of 
$1000 for Blow class trotters by Vallejo, and the Cali- 
fornia State Fair will doubtlees offer a $2000 stake for 
trotters of about the same class. If a horse comes 
out this summer that will be able to win all these 
stakes bis net earnings over and above entrance fees 
will be $2400— quite a nice profit for one horse to earn 
in four races held within a radius of one hundred 
miles. If Petaluma, Woodland and Napa should give 
meetings, additional stakes would very likely be 
offered for the slow class class trotters and thus the 
earning capacity of a good green trotter would be in- 
creased materially. If the managers of the many 
good mile tracks in California could only get to- 
gether and organize a circuit on up-to-date lines, a 
prosperous season of racing could be held every year. 
The Breeders association has clearly demonitrated 
that good harness meetings can be made to pay with- 
out any other attraction than the regular racing pro- 
gram and owners and lessees of tracks should be able 
to do as well. It seems almost useless to try to get 
the district agricultural boards to organize a circuit. 
Since the appropriations were taken away, the 
majority of these associations are not even keeping 
up their organization. Some few are holding meet- 
ings each year, however, and in nearly every instance 
these fairs and race meetings are successful financially 

and otherwise. 

With Pleasanton stalls all filled and over two 
hundred horses working on the track horsemen who 
have not yet begun regular work on their strings and 
are only "jogging on the roads around home,'" are 
casting about for a place to go to, and San Jose track 
is being considered by many. Those who have already 
located there claim it is as good as any track in Cali- 
fornia and during rainy days no section has finer 
roads to jog over. San Jose should be able to give a 
first class harness meeting every year, and all that 
is needed is a live man to take bold of the project and 
push it to a successful issue. 



Few sections of the United States have a better lot 
of stallions standing for public service than will be 
found in California this year. The list advertised in 
the Breeder a.nd Sportsman shows a particularly 
well bred lot and is getting quite large although the 
season will not be fairly open for two or three weeks 
yet. The majority of breeders aim to have the colts 
dropped in March or April as by that time the nights 
are seldom frosty in this section of the Slate, and 
feed is usually abundant. California has stallions 
and mares enough now in her borders to found a 
great family of trotters without going abroad for 
any new blood, but our breeders are progressive and 
not a year passes but young mares and stallions are 
brought here from the East to add to our breeding 
ranks. Owners of mares should look over the list of 
stallions advertised in this journal before booking, as 
the very line of blood wanted might otherwise be 
overlooked. 

Quite a large number of the trainers who are work 
ing horses on the California tracksat the present time 
are making calculations on going East in May or June 
to compete for the big purses that will be hung up for 
the trotters and pacers on the Grand Circuit. Of 
course all will not go who are now talking about it, 
but the probabilities are that there will be a larger 
representation of California horses on the Grand Cir- 
cuit this year than in 1903. It is meet and proper 
that this should be the case and it is to be hoped that 
the number of California stables that race on the 
Eastern tracks this year will be larger than ever. It 
'vill not reduce the entry lists on California tracks 
in the least as none but horses that have shown speed 
will be sent, and for every fast one that is lost to the 
home, circuit two or three tlower ones will have a 
better chance to be started and win part of the money. 
Pacers that can show three heats better than 2:10 and 
trotters that can trot in 2:ir) and repeat the perform- 
ance should be able to win money over East if they 
are steady and consistent horses at those rates of 
speed. 

Fourteen trotters won over five thousand dollars 
each on the Grand Circuit last year and every aged 
horse but one of the fourteen had to trot heats better 
than 2:10 to win. They are Billy Buck 2:07}, Haw- 
thorne 2:06}, Jay McGregor 2:08, Caspian 2:07}, Kin- 
ney Lou 2:07:i, Monte Carlo 2:07}, Masetto 2:08}, Dr. 



Sixty-six trotters won from $4775 to $1,000 on the 
Grand Circuit and of these but few paid expenses as 
entrance money and transportation expenses are 
heavy where the purses are large and the distance 
great between racing points Of the?e sixty-six trot- 
ters that could not be classed as good money winners, 
only a very few closed the year with a record slower 
than 2:15 and the majority had marks better than 
2:12. 

It was about the same thing with the pacing 
brigade. But ten of the vast army of pacers won 
upwards of $5000, and these were Star Hal 2:06}, 
Elastic Pointer 2:06J, Nervolo 2:04}, Tom Keene 2:04',, 
King Direct 2:09}, Al Bock 2:08}, Frank Yoakum 
2:05:i, Dr. Madara 2:08, Pan Michael 2:07^ and Joe 
Pointer 2:05}. It takes a good horse to win enough 
on the Grand Circuit to pay the expenses of the trip 
from Detroit to Memphis. Dan R. 2:01iS, one of the 
fastest of the fast brigade started in ten races and 
won but $3175, while Foxie Curd, one of the fastest 
of the brigade that started out in the spring without 
a mark, raced to a record of 2:07, started in seven 
races and won but $1850. 



It is very evident from these statements to see that 
a horse must be a good one to win any money at all 
on the big ring and that be must be not only good 
but lucky to return his owner a profit at the end of 
the season. 

The California Circuit was the smallest in 1903 for 
many years yet George G. won three races out of four 
starts and placed $1750 to his credit. He was a green 
horse at the start, took a trotting record of 2:12J and 
could be sold to-day for a good figure. Ben F. that 
won all his starts and had a pacing record of 2:10 at 
the close of the circuit, won four races and his win- 
nings were $2000. Both these horses started at but 
three meetings — Vallejo, Petaluma and Sacramento. 
A profit can be made with a good horse in California 
even though the circuit here is not a large one. 

Horses at Woodland Track. 



The well known Woodland track where the horses 
always go so fast during the racing season is not a 
lonesome place just now. 

H. S. Hogoboom has nine head, among them Arthur 
W. 2;11', . This stallion is looking fine. Mr. Hogo- 
boom has a three-year-old colt by McKinney that he 
is mighty sweet on. He is owned by Mr. C. L. Jones 
of Modesto The others are finely bred and all show 
well. 

Mr. Nason has a few nice ones — one a Diablo colt 
that is as fine as they make them. His green Falrose 
mare has speed to burn and what a road mare she 
should make. 

Peter Fryat has two — one a green pacer by Falrose 
that shows 2:20 speed with little work. 

A. B. Rodman has a few at the track. There are 
two McKinneys in his string that are nice lookers. 
He is going easy with them. 

Mr. Harrington Is gaiting several nice colts, one of 
them by Alta Vela 2:11} being a very attractive 
youngster. 

Walter Tryon has a small string, but some good 
ones among them. One is a filly by Dagon out of 
Swiftbird, the dam of Swift B. She can step some, 
too. 

The stallions are plentiful — Azmoor 2:20 and Baye- 
water Wilkes 2:24.', will get the best mares and they 
are two pretty good horses, too. Arthur W. 2:11 j, 
his brother John A. 2:'\2i. Tuberose, Gostiner Jr. , 
Mickey Free, Tomonco and perhaps one or two more 
represent the trotting stallions, jrhile Mr. Schwartz's 
thoroughbred Joe Terry is a good representative of 
his breed. So, you see, we are pretty well supplied 
with stallions. 

Dan O'Keefe does the shoeing for the track horses, 
and he can shoe with the best of them. 

They say here that Woodland will be on the circuit 
this year. We all hope so as we all take a pride in 
racing at home. Yours, Fanfakron. 



The Kenney Manufacturing Company, 531 Valencia 
street, San Francisco, has a second-hand Toomey 
cart with wood wheels, extra heavy carriage tie, 
cushion, etc., that is as good as new, having been 
used but little, which will be sold for $90, regular 
price $135. Harness, blankets, etc., goes with it. 
They also have a fine surrey for sale cheap and manu- 
facture sulky wheels and attachments to order. 
Pneumatic tires, solid cushions put on all kinds of 
vehicles. 

For all kinds of weather there is no drink like 
Jackson's Napa Soda — plain or in a lemonade. 



A Son of Seymour Wilkes in Australia. 

By the last mall from Australia, Mr. J. W. Gregory, 
of the St. George Stables, this city, received a letter 
from Mr. Teddy of Ohaupo, Waikato, Australia, who 
purchased and shipped from here last June, the stal- 
lion Salisbury and a handsome colt by Mr. 
Gregory's stallion Seymour Wilkes 2:08A. Mr. Teddy 
states that Salisbury has made a good season in the 
stud and will be raced during the coming circuit there. 
The Seymour Wilkes colt has filled out and is a splen- 
did looking three-year-old, although he will not be 
that age until June this year. Mr. Teddy says he 
has paced an easy mile in 2:20, which he considers as 
good as 2:10 over a good California track. Now that 
Seymour Wilkes is recognized as one of the coming 
great speed sires of California, it is pleasing to note 
that a good son of this horse has reached Australia 
and that he will not only be trained and raced to a 
low record, but will be used in the stud. Few stallioDB 
can show as uniform and handsome foals as the year- 
lings, two-year-olds and three year-olds by Seymour 
Wilkes. They are large, good boned, good gaited 
and are nearly all bays or browns, showing him to be 
a most prepotent sire. The big trotting gelding 
Monroe 2:12}, that took his record on the Grand Cir- 
cuit last year and will be raced again by Mr. Salisbury 
during the coming season, is a typical son of Seymour 
Wilkes and is known as the lightest going and best 
gaited big horse at Pleasanton. 



Year's Great Winnings. 

How great a lead the Wilkes family has over all 
other trotting families is shown when the winnings of 
the horses on the turf last year are tabulated and 
divided into family divisions. In the Grand Circuit 
last season 175 trotters and pacers descended In the 
male line from George Wilkes won $260,359. The 
Electioneer family or the forty descendants of that 
horse which won money in the big chain of races 
secured $39,560. The Dictator family is third with 
seventeen performers that won $39,460; the Tom Hal 
pacing family, with thirteen performers, won $38,080. 
Only three of the descendants of Happy Medium won 
money, but their total was $19,095. Seven de- 
scendants of Woodford Mambrino won $14,595; nine 
of the descendants of Nutwood won $11,025 and the 
same number of Strathmore's descendants won $10,- 
390. The only other familv that won an amount large 
enough to entitle it to consideration was the Almont 
family, seven of that tribe winning $9855. Five of 
the Wilkei group won over $10,000 each, namely, 
Billy Buck, with $.33,000; Hawthorne, with $18,750; 
Jay McGregor, with $17,7.50; Kinney Lou, with $11,500, 
and John Taylor, with $10,050. Only four horses 
outside the Wilkes family won as much as $10,000, 
they being Sadie Mac, in the Happy Medium, with 
$19,000; Caspian, in the Woodford Mambrino group, 
with $11,975; Star Hal, with $10,650, and Elastic 
Pointer, with $10,000, both in the Tom Hal group. 



The Haywards Horse Show. 

Haywards will have its annual horse and live stock 
show this year one week earlier than usual, Saturday 
afternoon, February 27th, being the date selected for 
the opening. 

The following officers have been elected to take 
charge of the show: President, George Gray; Vice- 
President, J. E. Geary; Secretary, G. A. Oakes; 
Treasurer, R. Reed. President Gray has appointed 
the following board of directors and committees: 
Board of Directors — George Grindell, A. Ramage, W. 
J. Ramage, G. S. Langan, M. Herry, C. M. Buck, D. 
S. Smalley, C. W. Heyer, C. Branin and A. Allen. 
Finance Committee — C. Heyer, D.Chisholm, R. Reed, 
J. W. McCoy, S. Simons; Mount Eden, H. Gansberger,

Reed, Dr. Browning and A. I. Graham. 



How to Keep a Careful Record. 



Every stallion keeper knows that much of the success of a 
season depends upon the caretul recording of services, making all 
accounts collectible and bankable. The best way to do this Is to 
secure a blankbook printed tor the purpose. The book need not be 
expensive nor large, and if it prevents the loss of only one service 
fee it will have paid for itself many times over. 

A book that will lit the pocket is best, then it is always ready 
when you need it. 

All facts should be recorded that you want and none that you 
don't want. 

Then there should be an index in the book so that every ser- 
vice could be referred to in a minute. 

A book that exactly meets all these requirements is pnblished 
by F. H. Eno, 510 Mulberry street, Des Moines. la. 

The book is also provided with a legal note to be signed by 
the owner of mare for each service. 

This one feature of the book is worth many times Its price 
(only 50 cents each) and saves horsemen many dollars every year. 

If you will ask Mr. Eno for free sample pages you will readily 
■see how nicely the book is arranged to meet your needs.

•♦• •♦• 



Considerable intereat is already evinced in the forth- 
coming meetings of the California Polo and Pony 
Racing Association. The first meeting of the asso- 
ciation will be held at Del Monte from Thursday, 
February 18th to Monday, February 22nd inclusive. 
Two days of that meet will be devoted e.xclusively to 
racing. The program consists of six events daily at 
distances ranging from three-sixteenths up to one 
mile and the weight conditions are so varied that the| 
possessor of a pony with any pretensions to speed will- 
surely find one or more events to his liking. Tbe| 
association has made arrangements for the free trans- 
portation of ponies to and from Riverside, Santa Bar- 
bara, Burlingame, San Francisco and San Mateo.' 
Due notice as to date and time of departure, etc., can 
be obtained from the secretary. More ponies are now 
in training than ever before and large fields will be 
witnessed in all the events. The entries for both the 
polo matches and races close positively on February 
i4th, and as the association desires to facilitate owners' 
arrangements as much as pissible, an early applica- 
tioE for stabling is requested. It is not necessary to 
become a member in the association in order to enter 
a pony, the only requisite to entry being that owners 
shall obtain the association's certificate as to height, 
etc., and that their ponies' pilot is a qualified gentle- 
man rider. All the purses and cups are of consider- 
able value and as no entry fees are demanded, the 
association's liberality ought to be largely appre- 
ciated and we predict a most successful inaugural 
meeting for the new association. 

The program of pony races to be run at the Del 
Moote meet is as follows: 

First race, one-fourth mile, for ponies— Entrance 
feeSo. lop weight 165 lbs.; 4 lbs. allowed on each J 
inch under 14h 2". Purse value to winner 875, en- 
trance fee to go to second. 

Second race, three-eighths mile, for ponies that ran 
but did not win a race on first day — Top weight 160

$65; value to the winner 850, second 815. 

Third race, one-fourth mile, for maiden ponies — 
Top weight 165 lbs ; 4 lbs. allowed on each 1 inch 
under 14h 2". Cup value to winner $75, second $25. 

Fourth race, one mile, for ponies — Top weight 1-55

Washington Jockey Club, Treasurer of the National 
Steeplechase and Hunt Association, and member of 
the Jockey Club, is now enroute for San Francisco 



He Is coming by the southern route and will stop off 
at New Orleans, Los Angeles and probably Del Monte 
before reaching this city. 

The thoroughbred stallion Rameses, son of Gold- 
finch and Fleurelte, own sielor to the great Fircnzi, 
will be in the stud at Stockton this season and owners 
of thoroughbred mares should patroni/e him as ho is 
one of the best bred and grandest looking stallions In 
California. His service Ico is $25, whlohis vory low 
for a horse of his tjualifioalions. Uamci^eB was bred 
at Uancbo del Paso and sold as a yearling at auction 
for StiSlKl. He showed remarkable speed as a two- 
year-old, but met wiih an accident and broke down, 
tie was started after that, however, and won In his 
class, beating a good field of horses. .Messrs. White 
A: Longurs of Slookton then purchased him and in 
.May, last year, bred him to five mares, all of which 
are 111 foal. Tbe sire of Rameses is imp. Goldfinch, 
son of Ormonde and Thistle by Scottish Chief. CJold- 
finch is one of Rancho del Paso's greatest sires. 
Although the oldest ol bis got are but seven years old, 
he is tne sire of over forty winners, among them the 
great mare Chclandry, Old England, C'unard, Gold 
Cure, Killashandra, Sweet Lavender and many other 
big money winners. Fleurette, the dam of Rameses, 
is one of the greatest of broodmares. She is an own 
sister to the peerless Firen/i, one of the greatest race 
mares of turt history. Fleurette has produced the 
winners Flower of Oold, Maxine, Flurry, C"ol. Dan, 
Silver 11, Uamoses and Convamore, the latter a good 
winner in England for three seasons. Rameses is bred 
very much like tbe celebrated Flying Fox that stands 
this year for .$;UXIO. Ho is dark chestnut, five years 
old, stands sixteen hands and an inch high, weighs 
1125 pounds, and is a splendid individual. 



Dick Wells will not be entered in the quartet of 
great spring handicaps. He will be raced at Wash- 
ington Park, Cbicago, after which he will be shipped 
direct to Saratoga. His first engagement at the bpa 
will be in the Saratoga Handicap. He will be nomin- 
ated for othersiakes at Saratoga and many ol tbe big 
events at tbe Sbeepshead Bay, (ira vesend and Morris 
Park fall meetings.

A son of the great Hanover will make the season of 
1904 at San Jose. This is the chestnut horse Hey- 
wood, owned by Mr. F. T. Hoffman, of Boise city, 
who hae brought his stallion here for the purpose of 
standing him for public service. Hanover was 
probably as good a race horse as was ever foaled in 
America and headed the list of winning eircs for four 
years and is now gaining additional reputation 
through his sons. Hey wood is considered one of the 
best bred of the sons of Hanover. His dam is The 
Niece, the dam of Nephew, La Colonia and Mantanza, 
all good winners. See was by Alarm, the first horse 
to run a mile below 1 :4.'!, and sire of the great race 
horse and stallion Himyar, sire of that great colt 
Domino. Jaconet, second dam of Heywood was an 
own sister to Iroquois, that was taken to England 
and won the Derby and St. Leger in 1881. Jaconet 
also produced Sir Dixon, Belvedere,, Hindoonet and 
Magna Charta. She was by imp. Leamington out of 
Maifgie B. B. by imp. Australian, the horse that 
sired Joe Daniels and Springbok. Hoywood traces 
16 times to Eclipse, 15 to Herod, and once to Matchen. 
He is a handsomeindividual standing 1.'>.3 and weigh- 
ing 1 100 pounds. He Is the only son of Hanover that 
will stand for public service on this Coast. See ad- 
vertisement in this Issue. 



Gold Heels, the famous thoroughbred of 1902, has 
beenenteied in the $.'(0,000 World's P'air Handicap 
that will be run at St. Louis. 



In speaking about how great horses are shipped 
nowadays between tbe oast and the west, or vice 
versa, with the horse in a palace car attached to a 
"limited," by special permission, and the owner In a 
private car, with possibly bis trainer and jockey, a 
turfman recalled the trip which the great Miss Wood- 
ford made to Louisville in the autumn of 188.'5. She 
was engaged In the Champion .Selling Stakes, and 
left Jersey City in an ordinary express car. In which 
were also Philip J. Dwyer and M. F. Dwyer, her 
owners; James Rowe, her trainer; James McLaughlin, 
the jockey, and one attendant. Wandering accom- 
panied the mare as a traveling attendant. The 
Messrs. Dwyer slept in the car with the mare, and 
though they were met by representatives of the 
association and asked to breakfast, they excused 
themselves, and after seeing the mare done up in tbe 
stable, went to a kitchen op the track and had their 
morning meal. Miss Woodford won the race by a 
half furlong, with 'Jreen Morris' Slocum second. 
Wandering third and E. Berry Wall's Wallflower 
fourth. One hour after the race Miss Woodford 
was again on the train, homeward bound. In fact, 
she was scarcely cooled out when abe was shipped, 
and again into the box car went the famous owners, 
their trainer and jockey, and they were ofT for Jersey 
City. Miss Woodford, after she had been given a 
mash, lay down, and with rare intervals did not get 
up until she reached Philadelphia. On the same 



train. In the coaches, was tbe Philadelphia Baaebal 
Club, which that year had won the pennant. The 
champions were received with the blare of druma atd 
the firing of guns, and the tumult awoke the mare, 
who l^ecame nervous, not getting over it thoroughly 
until she reached Jersey Cily. That fame evening 
she was walked to Jerome Park, and on the following 
day .Miss Woodford won the Hunter Slakes at n mile 
and three-quarters by six lengths, a dead heat for the 
place being run by Appleby .v Co.'s Carnation and 
J. E. Kelly's Bella, to whom the Dwyer mare was con- 
ceding seven pounds — UnrHtman. 



Horses for Women. 



A few years ago anything In tbe shape of a horse 
was considered suitable for a woman to ride. Whis- 
pers wore heard of the way a woman ruined any hone 
with hersldo-d ragging weight, due tothe ilde-saddic; 
the hard mouth resulting from her "riding on the 
bit;" the way she insisted on treating it like a pet 
child, making it do every thing at mont Inopportune 
times; anything for momentary display, urging and 
curbing in twenty yarda, while, as to gaits, there was 
utter demorall/.atlon. In fact, an added punishment 
to the in for no catalogue was|8uppoEcd to be the eternal 
riding of a "ladles' horse." 

This has ail changed. Woman has to a certain ex- 
tent taken the reina Into her own handa. Alwaya 
groat on mere appearances and the eternal fitnef."* of 
things — which at times are an odd fit— she now wants 
a horse with good appearance. Either country life 
and closer association with horses baa given the more 
or leas correct idea she now holds or she has picked it 
up at horse shows, and in that general channel of In- 
tuition which, after all. Is the sheet-anchor of a 
smart woman's opinion in most things. She does not 
know why, but she gets pretty near the correct line 
In most things in which she is vitally interested. 
Thus to-day she throws asidetheold time, no account 
steed, and insists on a horse that is good looking, 
which means that the horse must have that definite 
harmony of parts and proportion which elves the 
capacity for the work desired , and, also, to some ex- 
tent, presages the even temper and good disposition 
natural to the well bred, well cared for equine. It is 
sound common sense. One would not choose a club- 
footed man to win a sprint race. 

An average woman of today either wants an out- 
and-out hunter, or she leans to adistinct hunter type, 
even for park work. Such a horse should be temper- 
ate — that is to say, easily handled and not easily ex- 
cited, strong, safe, clever at fencei--, and fast enough 
for whatever the country may be. It Is a vital feature 
that he be up to his weight, more than in the case of 
a man's horse, simply because a man rides "to his 
weight," but a woman on a side-saddle inevitably 
rides "over," nearly twenty pounds over It. 

The animal should to some extent conform to the 
height of the rider; a tall woman should have a horse 
about sixteen hands, and so down in proportion; but 
it must be remembered that the larger horses take 
more holding together than do the smaller ones. 
Witness the full-sized hunter and the polo pony. Ho 
should be longer in the back than is a man's horse, 
this because the sidesaddle covers more area; the 
seat of a woman, with habit, spreads over greater 
space, and with a short back or with a abort-coupled 
horse, everything looks cramped and squeezed up, 
which is to bo avoided for several reasons, a chief one 
being that the long back gives greater elactlclty of 
motion. 

Ho should above all things be able to walk fast, an 

accomplishment only too rare these days. He should 
trot freely, with an even and level movement, and be 
broken to canter, right foot firat, at tbe touch of the 
heel. Ho should have good, flat, oblique shoulders, 
and a fairly high forehand, as a sidesaddle is a great 
deal of trouble on a high-crouped horse— it will slip. 
He should he easy to control and patient, by reason 
of long "waits'* at a gate, a gap, or other incon- 
venience, and, if not temperate in this respect, ho la 
likely to become very reatlve at control and then 
rear, which la the unpardonable vice of a woman's 
mount. 

Any horse that rears with a woman should beat 
once relegated to other divisions of tbe riding family. 
Thla la beyond appeal! Neither ahould a woman ever 
ride a roarer or a kicker, although a fairly large 
experience in aeveral countriea shows that more 
kickers aret ridden by woman than man, and several 
high authorities have justly included woman and her 
horse as one of the three evils te avoid contact with 
when riding. This, however, was more applicable to 
past days, and the great number of woman 's horses 
to-day are very good specimena and well behaved. — 
Exdiunge. 

A California trainer remarked the other day that 
about the only difTerence between a matinee and a 
regular record is that in the first Instance tbe frac- 
tion Is left off by the timers while in tbe other It li 
added on.

The trotting stallion Black Beaver 2:1;.') stands 
seventeen hands high and weighs 1450 pounds. He is 
a son ('f Summit 2:2".t5, grandson of Harold. 

The coming of the two-minute trotter has made 
things so lively on the stove circuit over East that de- 
mands are being made for official measurements of the 
circumference of baee burners. 



Geo. Ketcham, who returned last Monday from a 
trip to England, announced that while absent he sold 
to Louis Winans of Brighton, England, The Hang- 
man, a full brother to Cresceus 1:59J for $23,000, 



Word comes from Carthage, N. Y., that two weeks 
ago the trotting mare Corlnna finished a mile on the 
ice In 2:1.5, lowering the race-record on Ice and equal- 
ing that made last winter by Cresceus against time. 



Katrlnka G. 2:14J, the brown trotting mare by 
Stein way that took her record over lOast last year, 
was sold at the Fasig-Tipton auction In New York 
last week for SKliiO. She Is a full sister to Chas. 
Derby. 

Bayswater Wilkes will have quite a number of addi- 
tions to his 2:30 list this year. The sons and daugh- 
ters of this horse are attracting much attention from 
breeders who want the best qualities of the trotting 
families. 

Chlco 2:14i, owned by Lou Childs of Portland, 
Oregon, has been consigned to the McCarthy sale 
which takes place In that city, March Ist, 2d and 3d. 
McDrlar 2:14 by McKlnney has also been consigned 
to this sale. 

One of the best looking foals at Pleasanton is a 
young Stam B. that belongs to Mr. R. E. deB. Lopez. 
It Is out of a mare by James Madison, next dam 
Missle Medium that is by Rampart out of Belle 
Medium, the dam of Stam 6. 



George H. Estabrook of Denver has just purchased 
in Missouri the five vear old trotting stallion Hajjpy 
Walnut by Happy Heir, with a record of 2:24} and 
credited with a trial In 2:13J. He may be entered in 
the M. and M. stake next June. 



Chas. E. Cutler of 102 Clay street, this city, owns a 
three-year-old colt by Seymour Wilkes that Is very 
promising. This colt Is a full brother to the colt 
shipped to Australia last summer, mention of which 
is made on another page of this issue. 

The Committee on Rules of the National Trotting 
Association will meet in New York on the 8th Inst., 
two oays before the meeting of the Board of Review. 
President P. P. Johnston has appointed Mr. J. C. 
Simpson of Oakland as one c f the committee 

The citizens of Sacramento have decided to hold 
no Spring Street Fair this year. The last one was a 
losing venture and the books of the Southern Pacific 
Railroad Company show that It failed to draw the 
crowd of visitors from the outride that was expected. 

It is announced that a first-class mile trotting track* 
Is to be built at Atlantic City, X. J., equipped with 
stable accommodations for 400 horses, a beautiful club 
house, and fine up-to-date grandstand. The esti- 
mated cost of the whole, including SO acres of land, is 
$300,000. 

The bay gelding El Milagro 2:10J by McKinney, 
bred by Mr. Rudolph Jordan of this city and sold at 
auction .for $700 as a y»arlin?, again passed through 
the aalesring In New York last week. He brought 
$3100 and was purchased by Mr. A. Johnson of Brock- 
ton, Mass. 

W. L. Snyder Is the new secretary at Detroit. Mr. 
Snyder was trotting editor of the .Yec York Tch- 
-rjrajili for several years, and is a son of the well 
known trainer, W. H. Snyder, who raced Col. Kuser 
2:11}, Quartermarch 2:11J, and others In that section 
years ago 

Arner, the full brother to Diablo, should receive a 
good patronage this year. He will make the season 
at San Lorenzo. The family founded by his dam 
Bertha Is destined to be one of the greatest of the 
many great ones that have descended from Hamble- 
tonlan 10. 



If the drouth continues in Southern California, it 
is probable that a very large proportion of the horses 
in training there will be sent to this part of the State 
to be worked. There are several tracks in this sec- 
tion where excellent accommocatu ns. can be had and 
where feed Is abundant. 



Four stables are now being gathered In Denver to 
go down the line next year. These are the stablf s of 
Edwin Gaylord, George H. Estabrook. E. A. Colburn 
and Wright & Stoddard. In addition Thomas Burns, 
Ollle Dillon, Frank Locmis and other drivers will 
take out an animal or two. 



Mose Hart, the well known horseman of this city, 
Is not confining his operations entirely lo buying and 
selling fast trotters and pacers. He now has a big 
high stepper at Pleasanton that gazes at the stars 
and lifts his knees to his chin, putting on as much 
style as a blue blooded hackney. 

H. R. Ward Is handling a bay gelding by Antrim 
at Pleasanton that Is Improving very fast and bids 
fair to be a 2:20 trotter within the next few weeks, 
although he was almost unbroken when Ward began 
on him this winter. He has shown a mile In 2:27 
already and seems to improve every time he is taken 
out. 

According to statistics the 101,200 horses received 
in the Chicago market during 1!)03 were worth $5 
more per head on the average than the horses re- 
ceived in 1902. The gain over 1901 ran from $9 to $55 
per head according to quality. Carriage pairs aver- 
aged $455, drivers $150, saddlers $156 and general pur- 
pose $122. 

Dan Lawrence has a big gelding at the Pleasanton 
track by James Madison that Is an excellent prospect 
for a fast trotter. It Is a pity James Madison died, as 
his death was a!oss to the breeding interests of the 
State. It isa greater pity that he wasnot pitronlzed 
more by breeders as his blood will be more valuable 
as the years go by. 

Secretary Horace Wilson, of theKentucky Trotting 
Horse Breeders Association, announces that the Stoll 
sweepstakes for foals of 1902, to trot as two year olds, 
for which the association had agreed to act as stake- 
holder, has been declared oflf. There were oi ly five 
nominators for the event, and they i-eadlly consented 
to the arrangement. 

Mr. 3 Chrlstenson of this city met with a severe 
loss last week. His very handsome and fast mare 
Simone by Simmons lost twin foals by Stam B. 2:11 J . 
Simone was nominated in the Breeders Futurity and 
several of the big eastern stakes, an 3 Mr. Chrlstenson 
naturally expected a fast foal from her to compete for 
first money In them three years hence. 

Strathline, who got a record of 2:07} last season, is 
out of Olivia, also dam of Black Line 2:22 and 
Dr. S. 2:22}, both records made last season. Olivia is 
by Strathmore, out of Ozoria, by Smuggler 2:15J; 
second dam Odd Stockings (dam of Springlock 2:19], 
and two others), by Happy Medium; third dam. 
County House Mare by American Star 14. 

Major J. J B. DuBoisof Denver has purchased 
from A. V. Hunter of Leadville a stable of nine 
pacers. The string includes the famous stallion Car- 
bonate 2:09; his brother A. V. H. six years old ; the 
aged broodmare Beulab, with a mark of 2:14J as a 
three-year-old: Rose Quartz, seven years old", and 
Carbonetta a two-year-old filly by Carbonate. 

W. J. Kenney, of 531 Valencia street, has just re- 
ceived three handsome new matinee carts and a No. 
15 sulky all of the popular McMurray make. The 
carts are just the thing for matinee racing. The 
sulky is finished in white enamel and striped in blue 
and gold. It is a beauty. Mr. Kenney sold this week 
to W. T. Harris of Oakland one of the new 1904 Mc- 
Murray road carts. 

Budd Doble will not have any trouble filling Kinney 
Lou's book this season. He is receiving letters from 
all parts of California in regard to booking mares, 
and they are in nearly every instance from mer who 
have made a success In breeding. As Kinney Lou is 
limited to a dozen mares his book will be full early. 
The colts by him now in Tehama connty are a very 
handsome lot of two-year-olds. 

A bill has been Introduced Into the Kentucky Legis- 
lature making it a felony to buy or sell pools or make 
books in that State. If the bill becomes a law it will 
close the gates of every race track in Konlucky. It 
is alleged that there is somethlrg more behind the in- 
troduction of the bill than would appear at first sight, 
for the reason that of late there has been no sort of 
agitation for such action from or In any repres>entative 
section of the population. 

A feature of the sleighing carnival in Minneapolis 
last week was the appearance of an elegant but old- 
fashioned two-seated sleigh, once the property of 
Napoleon Bonaparte. This sleigh was purchased by 
a Boston millionaire in France and imported to this 
country many years ago; but at a recent dispersal 
sale of his effects by the executors of the esteio the 
sleierh was sold and just came Into the possession of J. 
D. Vivian, of Minneapolis. 

The handsome n>are Nellie R. 2:19i, whose picture 
appeared on the front page of the BREEDER and 
Sportsman of January Kith, is owned by Messrs. 
Frank and Joseph Long of Eureka, Humboldt county, 
who are prominent Ihjuor men of that place. Nellie 
R. Is very speedy as she showed last year when she 
was out for the first time. Five heats under 2:20, 
winningagalnst tried campaigners with faster records. 
Is proof that the Longs are in possession of an animal 
whose future will be worth watching. 



Budd Doble and Homer P. Saxe have bought of 
Tom Gannon, of Stockton, the four year old Mc- 
Klnney stud colt Parker McKinney. This colt is out 
of a Dexter Prince mare thi t can show a 2:20 gait any 
time she Is called upon to do it and she is a pure 
gaited trotter. The second dam of the colt is by 
Elect, third dam by a son of Clark Chief. They ex- 
pect to make a very valuable colt of this son of Mc- 
Kinney and Mr. Doble will handle him a while at San 
Jose this spring. 

A great deal of time will be saved at the race meet- 
ings if the weight rule is abolished. Since the bike 
sulky was Invented the weight of a driver has made 
very little difference, If any, to the speed of a trotter 
or pacer, and the time consumed in weighing a dozen 
men at the end of each heat has done much to pro- 
long the program until sundown. A race is seldom 
trotted where there are not several drivers who are 
overweight from ten to thirty pounds, and these 
heavy weights seem to win about as often as the 
fellows who are compelled to carry a lot of lead In 
their sulky cushions. 

The bay gelding Blrdcatcher by Direct that Mon 
roe Salisbury campaigned on the California cifcuit In 
1899, but failed to win with, Is now one of the fast 
roadsters seen on the speedway in (iolden Gate Park, 
San Francisco. Blrdcatcher spent two years at Cape 
Nome, Alaska, and was brought back last fall by his 
owner, Mr. Silion, whothinks the old fellow Is a better 
horse now than he ever was. He had a brush the 
other day with Mr. S. Chrlstenson who was driving 
his fast trotting mare Fay Templeton, and they made 
the last half of the speed way in 1:06 with the mare a 
length or two ahead at the finish. 



Theodore Coleman, formerly manager of the har- 
ness races held in connection with the New York 
State Fair, is authority for the statement that the 
Empire State district county and other fairs receive 
money enough from the racing tax to pay all their 
premiums and leave a good big balance in the treasury. 
Mr. Coleman says there are around fifty of Ihes" fairs 
and that each receives from $1500 to $4000 each per 
year without exhausting the fund. Mr. Coleman adds 
that he has been mixed up with these New York 
fairs for many years and that he never knew them 
so prosperous as they are to-day. 



Andy McDowell writes to the Troltcr and Pacer 
from Vienna, that, after a rough sea trip, he has his 
New York purchase!, of last fall all in shape to begin 
training. Belle Kuser 2:08, is working well, and will 
race successfully, like her sire, over seas. The other 
trainers at Vienna include the forirer Readvllle 
handler, Eddie Switzer, who is now with Mr. Hauser, 
owner of the largest stock farm In Vienna, and owner 
of McVera 2:10J. Ben Tappan, Dan Keefe, George 
Borderman, James Brown are there In addition to 
Andy McDowell. The little stallion, Wainscott 2:10}, 
Is doing well in Diefenbacker's string, and should 
race well. The season opens March 2, over there, 
three weeKs earl'er than in former years. 



In a letter written to the Breeder and Sports- 
man by Mr. T. W. Barstow, owner of Nearest 2:22 
full brother to John A. McKerron 2:04J, he says: 
"My bay filly Just It by Nearest stepped an eighth 
In 17 secondslast week and I think she can step one 
In just 16 seconds. How do you like that? There 
are three or four more right close by that are knock- 
ing at the door." This don't surprise us. That 
Nearest will be a great sire of speed is absolutely 
certain. He just can't help it. He Is bred to be a 
sire. When Alone 2:09} camp out some of the knockers 
said that she came by chance and Nearest would never 
get another, but there is one at San Jose now that is 
just as good as Alone and will not stop at 2:09} Alone 
will knock several seconds from her mark the first 
chance she gets. Nobody ever saw a really poor one 
sired by Nearest. They all show speed. 



James Butler, of New York, who owns East View 
Farm, the home of Direct 2.05J, and whose racing 
string is managed by Monroe Salisbury of Califrrnla, 
has adopted a course exactly opposite to that of most 
breeders for disposing of his surplus stock. Most 
breeders sell the untrained products of their farms, 
preferring to keep those which training hai shown 
to be good race horses, but Mr. Butler has decided to 
offer at public sale each fall the record horses in his 
stable, believing this course will suit buyers better 
and he himself will take the chances of getting 
another racing stable from the green youngsters on 
the farm. Mr. Butler now has one of the largest 
bands of broodmaresin thecountry and It is necessary 
for him to dispose of a part of his young horses each 
year. It is just possible that his decision to sell his 
record horses icstesd of his untrairtd jourgstfTs, 
will turn out to be an excellent thing for him. 



An interesting Incident in connection with the 
meeting of the joint committee which rendered the 
absurd decision regarding Lou Dillon's record to high 
wheel sulky, wa» the opinion given by the veteran 
bicycle rider, Thomas Eck, regarding the probable 
benefit a trotter or pacer would derive by being pre- 
ceded by a pacemaker, as Lou Dillon was in her fast 
miles last fall. Eck is considere d an expert on matters 
pertaining to pace used in bicycle races against time, 
and he stated that so long as the rider keept right up 
against the motor or the object In front setting the 
pace, he will be greatly benefited by it, but the 
instance he gets over five feet benlnd the pacemaker 
he Is out of the vacuum and unable to get up again. 
When shown two photographs taken at Readvllle, 
Mass., the day Lou Dillon firsttrotter' in two minutes, 
which showed, at the two different points In the mile 
at which the photographers were stationed, the run- 
ner to be from 15 to 20 feet in front of the trotter, be 
stated that the pacemaker, as far as wind resistance 
was concerned, was of no benefit whatever. 



February ti, 19041 



Thoroughbreds as Pacers. 

Frederick Watson has an interestint article in the 
last number of the American Horse lira-dcr, from 
which we make the following extracts: 

Some two or t aree weeks ago I mentioned the fact 
that we should almost certainly see one or more 
strictly thoroughbred horses out the coming season, 
as pacers, with "the straps" on. This piece of news, 
together with my comments on the possibility of 
teaching thoroughbreds to pace, rather startled some 
people, especially our old friend ''Kajmond," and 
really, I am not surprised that it did, for the idea is 
certainly rather startling anyway. There have been 
students of breeding and of the horse in general who 
have asserted the fact that no thoroughbred horse 
was ever known to pace, but this idea is disproven by 
actual eye witnesses. Lots of times I have seen thor- 
oughbreds pace when e.\ercising on the Ocean Boule- 
vard in Brooklyn, and also at the tracks, both in 
their work and even in actual races. Two years ago, 
the exact date 1 have forgotten, I saw a thoroughbred 
actually win a race on a pace. The facts of the case 
were these: The horse was winning "going away," 
as they say, and it was evident that the jockey was 
trying not to show up the horse any more than he 
could help, so be was taking him back as much as 
possible, and did so to such an extent that he pulled 
the horse into a pace, and he went under the wire in 
that way. Hard to believe, I know, but 1 saw it, and 
believe that I can tell whether a horse is pacing or 
running. 

Last year, to be exact, on July 14th, at the Brighton 
Beach track, there was a horse called Minotour, a 
bay gelding by Eon, dam Mermaid, that cooled out 
on a pace. He paced, walked on a pace in the pad- 
dock just as many a hoppled pacer has been seen to 
do from regular habit. There was no question about 
this, for the case attracted my attention so much 
that I stood and watched him make five or six circles 
of the paddock, and he walked on a pace all the time. 
This peculiarity I marked on my score card, which 
aicD jQts for the fact of baing able to quote the day 
and name, etc , of the horse. If this horse walked 
on a pace without being taught by the help of the 
straps, why could he not be taught with the straps to 
pace at a faster gait than a walk? 

The purposeof my original article regarding putting 
the hopples on thoroughbreds was to show that as 
hoppled pacers are artificially gaited, it would be just 
as well to start in with all the actual speed that could 
be obtained and teach that to pace, so that instead of 
taking a horse that could not go a mile at any kind 
of a gait, trot, pace or run, in two minutes, and by 
putting the hopples on him make a fast pacer out of 
him, why not start in with better than two minute 
speed at once and put the hopples on a thoroughbred 
and teach him to pace. I have always contended that 
a hoppled pacer was an artificially gaited animal and 
was made so by force not by education Without the 
"controlling influence" of the straps some of these 
pacers are apt to change their gait back to the 
original fastest gait of the natural horse, the run, 
quite a strong argument in favor of my theory that 
the original pacers carried quite a lot of running blood. 
I have always been an anti-hopple man and so argued 
that, if we are to have horses on the track that are 
compelled to pace became their legs are tied together 
in such a manner that it was impossible for them to 
move them at any other gait than a pace, why take 
a slow horse and force him to pace when you can get 
a fa«ter one and force him to pace by tying his legs 
together so that he must move them at the pacing 
gait. 

Until the introduction of instantaneous photogra- 
phy it was generally believed that when a horse ran 
(galloped; he gathered hi' two front legs under him 
at the same time and made a series of jumps, but a 
series of pictures of horses in the act of running 
shows that this is not the action of a running horse 
at all; in fact he hardly over gets into such a position. 
Sometimes he has only one leg on the ground at a 
time, sometimes two, not always two front or two 
hind, as the action of jumping suggests, but eome- 
times one front and one hind leg, and sometimes he 
has three legs on the ground at the same time. This 
shows that the action of running is not actually put- 
ting down the two front feet on the ground together 
and then putting down the two hind feet, as was 
generally accepted as the action of a running horse. 
In some of the pictures it is seen that the horse has 
one front foot and the corresponding hind foot, on 
the same side, on the ground at the same time, only, 
instead of their positions being both extended to the 
front or rear, as is the case with a pacor, the front 
foot is extended to the front and the hind foot is ex- 
tended to the rear. Many of these pictures of runners 
In action show the same positions as can be noted in 
pictures of pacers in action, and in the latter it can 
often be noted that the pacer's feet are not on the 



ground exactly in the manner that it has bcon 
generally supposed that they were. 

I contend that the pacer is running at one side at a 
time, and that he gets his gait from trying to break 
from the trot to a run, but "splits the difTeronce, " 
and only breaks at one side at a time. This is due to 
two causes. In the case of the pacing bred pacer, his 
inherited idea to go on a trot, which he gets from the 
coarser and slower side of his family blood, makes 
him try to perform on a trot, while the inclination to 
run which he gets from the thoroughbred strain that 
he inherits prompts him to run, and both inclinations 
being equal ho docs half of each, and the result is that 
while he picks up his feet with iho action of a trotter 
ho picks up the two together that he would if he was 
going to run, and the result is a pace. 

Take a runner that can run a mile in 1:40 and ask 
him to pace in two minutes, and you are only asking 
him to travel within Ml per cent of his actual speed 
capacity; but take a t.rotter that can trot in 2:20 and 
asK him to pace in 2:0"i and you are calling upon him 
for a much higher percen-tagc of his speed capabili- 
ties, possibly even bis limit, as few. If any, horses that 
are trotting bred can run a mile as fast as they can 
pace one, although when pressed to the limit of their 
speed when on a pace they will try to go faster by 
breaking into a run, and for a little way can go faster. 
I am firmly of the belief that thoroughbreds can be 
taught to pace, and as artificially gaited horses, such 
as hoppled pacers, are allowed on the tracks and are 
even encouraged, it would seem like good judgment 
to get the very fastest material possible ' to manu- 
facture them from," and, therefore, why not take the 
horse that you know can go faster by far than the 
trotting bred one? 

If thoroughbreds can he tavight to go in harness 
and to go on a trot while in harness, and they are so 
taught, why cannot they be taught to goon a .still 
faster gait, the pace. When this is done it will be the 
most convincing evidence that the hoppled pacer is a 
manufactured article, and should not be permitted to 
compete in the same classes as the pacer that has 
been educated to pace, and not forced ti by tying his 
legs together in such a manner that he is not able to 
do anything else but pace. I do not want to see the 
thoroughbred degraded into a hoppled pacer, but I 
believe that if a few were so sacrificed it would result 
in the final and permanent abolition of what I have 
always considered a disgrace to the sport of harness 
racing, the hopples, and this opinion is shared by a 
good many who are not influenced by the ownership 
of one or more pacers that have to wear the straps. 



Admiral Dewey 2:14 1-4 Brings $5900. 

Admiral Dewey, the six-year-old son of Bingen 
2:06J and Nancy Hanks 2:04 brought the top figure at 
the Fasig-Tipton Midwinter sale at New York last 
month. The I'mllcr tniil I'arcr a&ys: 

"The opening day's star lot was, of course, the 
wonderfully fast Admiral Dewey 2:14}, at three, from 
J. Malcom P'orbes' select stud at Ponkapog, Mass. 
He is a son of Bingen 2:0ii}, that as a two-year-old 
trotted a public exhibition at Portland in 2:12J, the 
nearest to Arion's incomparable 2:10;| yet trotted, 
while his dam was the old turf (j,ueen, Nancy Hanks 
2:04. For weeks everyone kas been registering guesses 
as to the last bid when bis time came to change 
owners, and it was not generally expected that he 
would command over S.l.'jOO despite the ext-eme speed 
inheritance and possession of a low race record at 
three. Although he is an untried stallion, his superb 
breeding will entitle him to the consideration of every 
student who knows a good pedigree, and his success 
in the stud is conceded. 

Three men wanted the big bay, Hon. .1. M. John- 
on, breeder of Sadie Mac 2:11}, of Calais, Me. : Andrew 
J. Welch and Warren A. Bacon, Paris, Ky. Some-
